In collaboration with Talentmarks, our March session will feature Donna Serdula. Linkedin offers job seekers a vast online community of supporters who will be there to help them get jobs. Donna takes us back to the basics to remind us the importance of building a powerful and engaging profile, one that will not only be found in searches, but accurately reflects accomplishments and capabilities. It's not rocket science, but it does require a commitment of time and an occasional review to keep relevant. Donna's book, Linkedin Makeover is a must read for Linkedin users.
