LinkedIn continues to be cited as the top online channel for both job seekers and recruiters. Yet, most do not spend an adequate amount of time investing in their online profile. Reasons for this vary from not enough time or knowledge, to the an awareness gap in keeping up with the sites new enhancements and features.

I’m pleased to share that Paul DeBettignies, Co-Founder and VP of Recruiting at , will be leading a webinar next week to help close this gap.

Paul is a popular speaker and trainer. He has presented at SHRM events, MobCon, Minnesota Recruiter and Staffing Association, Twin Cities Human Resources Association, Human Resource Professionals Minnesota and Minnesota Recruiters. He has also presented nationally with The Fordyce Forum and Social Recruiting Summit.

While this session is designed for Recruiters and HR Professionals – other individuals will also benefit from the content, including job seekers, executives, etc.

The webinar will be held on Friday, October 12th from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Central Time.

Additional details:

As a HR professional you likely already on LinkedIn but are you really using it to its full potential?

  • Does your profile adequately represent you and your company
  • Can you be easily found by potential candidates
  • Do you know how to find people
  • Are you using all the tools like Applications, Answers, Events

The core of the session is to create a strategy to:

  • Rank higher in search results
  • Work with marketing and sales colleagues to optimize the company profile
  • Highlight jobs and the employer brand
  • Contribute content in status updates and groups



Included in the session will be basic and advanced LinkedIn searches, tips and tricks for sourcing candidates, how to build a network and more.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you already have an optimized LinkedIn profile, know how to use the advanced search function and are using the various tools for candidate generation then this session is likely NOT for you.
