Ex-Military LinkedIn Webinar
LinkedIn: What exactly is it, what does it mean to ex-military candidates and how can you use it to find a job?
Did you know that over 85% of employers, when making their shortlisting decisions, will check out your LinkedIn profile?
With over 470 million members worldwide, LinkedIn is now part of everyday business behaviour. So if you don’t have a profile, or have one that is weak and lacking in value, you could be missing out on a huge opportunity. Having a high impact, fully optimised LinkedIn profile these days is not optional, it’s an essential part of your job seeking collateral.
And yet, so many job seekers get this badly wrong. On a recent webinar to over 400 jobseekers, we found out that 98% had a LinkedIn profile…but only 3% admitted they knew how to use it.
On Tues 28th Feb at 19:15hrs, Demob Job will be presenting a FREE live webinar on LinkedIn, its importance to ex-military professionals, and how to use it to find work. If you’re not able to attend on the night, that’s not a problem – as long as you have registered in advance we can send you the recording. Places are available on a first come first served basis, please register by selecting the button above or below.
This webinar will be delivered by Jo Murchie, award winning military Personal Branding Specialist, in conjunction with The CV & Interview Advisors, global thought leaders on career development collateral. Using a combination of self marketing and personal branding techniques, we'll be showing you how your LinkedIn profile can complement and dovetail with your CV to be an instrumental part of creating your "personal brand" and demonstrate the value that the ex-military candidate brings to the workplace.
We’ll also be discussing:
- What LinkedIn is and how different people use it
- How to create an attention grabbing Headline and Summary
- What you should and shouldn’t put in the Positions section
- How to sell yourself through your profile
- How to use Projects & case studies for maximum impact
- How to use LinkedIn for successful networking
- The changes to the LinkedIn platform in 2017 and what this means to users
These webinars have been described as “truly inspirational” and “genuinely outstanding”. Here’s just some of the feedback we received to our recent Demob Job webinar on advanced CV writing techniques:
“Great presentation! Really motivating.”
“Very informative and helped clear a few myths.”
“One of the most informative sessions I have had in a long time.”
This webinar will be delivered live, with a Q&A session at the end.
