LinkedIn is a business networking platform; it was designed to help professionals connect. Yet, the ease of the technology of building a professional network does not necessarily lead to meaningful connections, which is crucial to the job seeker. This skill-builder workshop will go through the nuts and bolts of helping the job seeker find connections in their field through searches, alumni groups, and interest groups, but will also provide strategies to turn virtual connections into meaningful relationships. Types of strategies include research, customized connection requests, free In-Mails, and publications all designed to help the job seeker to connect to the right people to land their meaningful job and create a meaningful life.
