Topic Overview: 

Whether you are brand new to LinkedIn or just looking to take your profile to the next level, this workshop is for you. In our time together, we will work together from start to finish to build a recruiter-enticing profile! At the end of our first session, participants will be asked to share their redesigned LinkedIn pages, as well as provide feedback for others! In our time together, participants are going to level up their LinkedIn page by:

  • Expanding their network
  • Adding visual and appropriate images
  • Writing a concise and recruiter-enticing About section
  • Linking relevant links and documents
  • Updating or adding relevant work experience and education

In the second part of our session, Planning Your Perfect Portfolio, we will walk through building your brand identity and planning your digital portfolio. Building your brand will explore how colors, names, and themes can begin consistency to your portfolio and create recognition. Branding will flow directly into plotting out and planning your portfolio. By the end of the second part, participants will:

  • Begin formulating their brand, including aesthetics, colors, and theme.
  • Plan out their portfolio through audience identification and portfolio purpose.
  • Identify the tools needed to build a portfolio
  • Start building their portfolio.
