Why LinkedIn is important to career success

Did you make it to our recent LinkedIn workshop? If not, we’ve got you covered. The event offered a great look at why LinkedIn is such an important networking tool — especially for adult learners who might be new to the job search after years in a different career — and we’ve captured the highlights in case you missed it.

Robb Pardee, one of LinkedIn’s recommended experts, took some time to talk with us one on one before he kicked off the seminar. Jump over to the Peirce College blog where we’ve featured a video interview between Robb and one of our bloggers. Watch the video for Robb’s advice when it comes to LinkedIn etiquette. He talks about expanding your LinkedIn network, how to optimize your LinkedIn profile, how companies recruit on LinkedIn, and more.
