After some great projects that i’ve asked the people i’ve worked with to leave a quote about the quality of my work:
Greig's webinar was the best of its kind that I have encountered. He presented a logical, thoughtful and proactive approach to utilizing and maximizing the potential of LinkedIn to build a viable professional network that will give me an edge in my job search. In addition, I learned many other new techniques and strategies that will help me to differentiate myself and make the most of my personal brand and online reputation. In summary, by helping me to understand how LinkedIn and other web-based strategies and tools are used in the latest recruiting practices, I feel that I will now be able to better position myself to succeed in this highly competitive job market. Thanks Greig!
I found this webinar to be extremely helpful. The "How to Contact Anyone" tips will be the most valuable to me. Using the LinkedIn Group feature to be able to email anyone on the site is a brilliant networking technique. Thanks for all the insights!
I've attended three seminars on social networking, but this is the FIRST time I have ever really understood the use of keywords and HOW TO FIND THOSE KEYWORDS! Moreover, learning how I can actively target my job hunt rather than wait for someone to find my resume was a revelation. You started from the beginning and built a branding, marketing, job-hunting strategy that I can actually use. Many thanks!
My gratitude to you for this incredibly insightful and helpful webinar. I have had a LinkedIn account for quite some time now and had no idea how to use it in my job search. I found the techniques on building groups, developing my profile, etc., all new information to me. I think this information will help in job search, and enriching my life in general.
