One of the things I'm focusing on in the class is writing a clear, compelling, well-branded profile summary and experience sections. Anyone want to share some good writing techniques, tips, or resources?
When I present about LinkedIn, there are always lots of how-tos and technical bits to share, but this time I'm going hardcore into writing and strategy, which is a little scary as I've never done a workshop like that before. I'd love your ideas and thoughts!
Thanks in advance! Keep up the good work :-)
If you've connected with me on #LinkedIn -- thank you! If not, please do :-) I'd love for you to read this post, share, and spread some gratitude among those you appreciate this holiday season.
