LINKEDIN HELP for Job Hunting / Career Development

I’m at the first ever Social Media Weekend 2011 at the Columbia University School of Journalism until tomorrow. It’s the perfect time to blast this info about LinkedIn out again since I just sat through a 90-minute session on job hunting and career management.


The information below was distributed to attendees of an event I organized for the Columbia Business School Club of New York this past winter. It includes links to videos, blogs, and posts about maximizing your LinkedIn profile for your professional development for job search and even lead generation.


Hello and thank you for your interest in the Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York’s Your LinkedIn Profile: To make it to the top, make it POP Social Media Event held at the Samsung Experience on December 6, 2010.

Below are links to the video of the presentation as well as links to more info on maximizing the effectiveness of your LinkedIn profile and network from the advisor and other sources.

Whether you attended or not, if you watch the video, we would like to receive your feedback, so please fill out a 5-minute 7-question survey help us plan for new and even better social media related events.

Here is the link to the survey:  http://svy.mk/cbs120610

We trust and hope that you will fill it out. Please take a moment to fill it out. If you provide your contact information, we will select one survey respondent who will receive a personalized one-time evaluation, including providing suggestions, of their LinkedIn profile. However, we do not require personalized info to submit survey responses. You may enter a pseudonym, if you don’t want us to know who said what.

Here is the contact info for the presenter & advisors for the event:
