Get Noticed #2: LinkedIn Profile Optimisation
Back for a second week running, we are hosting this second session of LinkedIn Optimisation to also raise money to support Black Lives Matter organisations.
A lot of our community is based internationally, and as such we wanted to offer a digital mechanism to support them. We have decided to host a series of virtual webinars on a variety of thematic subjects as a part of our new community-focused events series online: Power Webinars.
Goal of the Power Webinars Series
The Power Webinar is seeking to do exactly what it says in the name, give you the power (and confidence) to engage with a subject at hand. We seek to support our community to access new insights, content and up-skill themselves at all levels. All of our webinar sessions have either a nominal or no-fee attached, to ensure everyone can access this resource. All sessions are conducted in a safe and inclusive environment, and will be anchored on a key topic shared with the guest for that session.
Get Noticed #2: LinkedIn Profile Optimisation
This month has been about supporting professionals with soft skills. We wanted to go that extra mile and have a condensed one-stop-shop to support those trying to get hired. Get Noticed is a unique multi-part series focused on CV building, LinkedIn Optimisation, Personal Branding and Photography + more.
#2 LinkedIn Optimisation
So what is in a LinkedIn profile you may ask? Well, a lot of things. In the digital world, you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't show up, as it can make all the difference. A solid profile can serve as a combination of a CV, brochure and bio on who you are and why you matter.
In this workshop, you will gain practical advice on how to optimise your profile from being a digital resume to a strong landing page for your brand. You will learn how to enhance all parts of your profile, even ones you didn't think were important!
This session will cover:
- insights into a compelling summary
- best practices for building credibility
- understanding how to boost visibility
- how to network online and utilise your network
- finding your communication style and networking
- how to build an engaging presence
- how position yourself as an expert within your niche
- content posting 101
Whether you’re a LinkedIn veteran or yet to sign up, you will get practical advice that you can start using immediately to succeed on LinkedIn this year.
Supporting Black Lives Matter
We will be donating the majority of the proceeds between two core charities/organisations we'd like to support:
Black Lives Matter which began in 2013 following the death of Trayvon Martin, and the acquittal of the white man who fatally shot him, George Zimmerman. It operates in the US, Canada and the UK, organising, creating petitions, intervening on violence on Black communities and "creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy".
Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, founded following the murder of Stephen Lawrence in 1993 (a racist attack), the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust helps young people from disadvantaged backgrounds between the ages of 13 and 30 to succeed in their chosen career.
