Our LinkedIn workshop with Javed Khan was a success! Javed presented to a packed house of 25 attendees, during lunch on June 20, 2016, at Collège Boréal.
We learned so many tips and tricks to market ourselves on the professional networking site. We also learned what NOT to do (in fact, we ran to edit our profiles after the presentation because we learned we were committing some major faux pas).
Wish you were there? Here are some tips straight from the expert himself:
- Always personalize your request to connect and specify to the person where you met, and why you want to connect.
- Your profile photo should be a professional headshot. A funny photo or selfie is not appropriate.
- Add your contact information in your profile to make it easy for people to reach out.
- Focus on your expertise and brag about your accomplishments.
- Ask for recommendations.
