Networking on LinkedIn®
“Networking is finding, developing, and nurturing relationships that mutually move people forward through life.” @TLBurriss
No matter where you are in your career, networking is important. And when used properly, LinkedIn is a powerful networking tool.
As of the end of 2016, there were more than 467 million people with LinkedIn Profiles. Most of these are business professionals, however the industries and job titles represented on LinkedIn are very broad and diverse. I’ve also discovered that often the people on LinkedIn are open to connecting and having relevant conversations.
In this course, you learn how to find the right people with whom to connect on LinkedIn and how to create business and career value from your LinkedIn Network.
During this course, we review the best practices of accepting a LinkedIn Invitation and of sending LinkedIn Invitations. You also learn what to do once you do connect with someone on LinkedIn. This is critical; otherwise all you are doing is collecting digital business cards (connections).
