Social Networking has become the strategy of choice not only for recruiting, but for building a resource and relationship network throughout the HR department, organization and the business community. Through LinkedIn one may research how to develop a new talent strategy, learn what others are doing to solve a thorny people problem, or explore an innovative solution. In today’s fast paced business environment, being connected through LinkedIn to one’s network, as well as other industry and professional groups, is a must-do. For the HR professional, LinkedIn is an important part of any successful recruiting strategy.

The real time, interactive presentation will provide easy-to-implement and proven techniques for getting the most out of the LinkedIn experience and for improving processes within the HR department. Some of the topics that will be demonstrated include: 

  •     How to develop a 100% completed profile that establishes one’s brand.
