We all have a talent story to tell. When it comes to showcasing your education, accomplishments and skills to recruiters and hiring managers, it is paramount to get LinkedIn to your story! In this workshop, Ruthie Hertzberg, LinkedIn Rock Your Profile Ambassador, will cover how to highlight your strengths, build your professional network and use LinkedIn’s latest features—including recording a profile video to introduce yourself to your next connection!
