This Course is For You if:

  1. You’re Job Searching 

    • You’re actively (or passively) looking for a new job and haven’t had any luck landing an interview. Basically, your LinkedIn Profile isn’t helping you catch the eye of recruiters.

  2. You’re in a Rush

    • Your LinkedIn profile is beyond basic, you don’t have a lot of time to update it, and you need something impressive before you can connect with a hiring manager or apply for a job on LinkedIn.

  3. You’re a Planner 

    • You want to be ready and prepared with an optimized LinkedIn profile so that job leads will come straight to you. You’re a networker, and you want your profile to remind people who you are and what you do.

  4. You’re Overwhelmed 

    • The list of do’s and don’ts for your LinkedIn profile leave you yelling “I. Just. Can’t.” I’ve simplified the entire process. I got you.


  • You need to have a profile at least started -- doesn’t need to be filled in though. 

  • You will likely want to bring your laptop or tablet to work on your profile while we’re in session. If you don’t have one, plan on taking tons of notes! 

The Clock is Ticking…

In less than 2 hours, I will show you how to completely transform your LinkedIn profile, optimizing it for everything you could need—

  • Finding that job

  • Expanding your network

  • Making a career transition

  • Pitching your brand 

You’re ready to join the LinkedIn community. I’m ready to show you how.
