HCC Offers LinkedIn Seminar March 18

Blake Zito

LinkedIn is the #1 place job recruiters go to find candidates, so it's critical you have a well-prepared LinkedIn profile that sells your skills and personality. Linking up with LinkedIn is a great opportunity for students, alumni, and community members to learn how to use this powerful social networking tool to land a job and make important connections in today's competitive job market.

In this seminar you will learn:

  • How to establish your professional profile and control one of the top search results for your name

  • Search for jobs and connect with potential employers

  • Build and maintain a broader network of professionals you can trust for future collaboration

Presenter Blake Zito has worked locally, managing social media properties as a public relations specialist with State Farm.  He now works as lead storyteller with the insurance giant, focusing on helping others share interesting and compelling content with the right audience in the right channels.

The presentations will take place Tuesday, March 18, 2014 at Heartland Community College, 1500 W. Raab Road in Normal.
