‘Business of law: Creating a personal brand on social media’

A LinkedIn profile is your shop window. It is the first place someone will go when wanting to research you or find someone with your skills. A small amount of time invested in a LinkedIn profile can reap significant reward. It should not be a CV. It needs to be a compelling story that explains why people should want to get to know you. The module looks at LinkedIn profiles and guides the user through creating a compelling and interesting page. The session lasts approximately 60 mins and hands on action is encouraged during the training.
