LinkedIn for Job Seekers & Professionals


job-seekers-trainingWant to increase your chances of finding another job or furthering your career?

With over 460 million users worldwide, LinkedIn is the world’s biggest professional social network.

It is rapidly becoming employers’ first port of call to find new employees, and for professionals to highlight their expertise, make new connections, and look for fresh career opportunities.

CV and LinkedIn profile writing – why does my profile matter?

Your LinkedIn profile will be among the first search results whenever someone Googles your name. You should be in control of your online presence as this is a gateway to everything you want professional contacts to know about you on the web.

Many people put together their LinkedIn profile with no real thought as to the impact the content can have on their future career. Any old photo will do, there’s no real detail in the summary or experience, or none at all, inappropriate skills are listed, there are spelling and grammatical errors…. I have seen it all! First impressions count.

People spend a lot of time and care on compiling their CV to present to new employers. Your LinkedIn profile is your online CV and the same should apply here. It should be thorough, accurate and constantly updated.

What are the benefits of having a professional LinkedIn profile?

An insightful, compelling and powerful profile will immediately engage the reader and will encourage them to read on.

Key skills and specialities are highlighted using keyword-optimised rich text so employers and recruiters will easily find you.

A unique profile will make you stand out as the expert in your field.

I am committed to ensuring that you are 100% satisfied with your LinkedIn profile.

    Rachel's advice has fundamentally changed the way we see LinkedIn and are seen by others. The updated profile produced is far more likely to be effective in communicating how we can add value and by default, make us more attractive to be LinkedIn with.

    Rachel's transition from the legal profession to a LinkedIn Expert is seamless. I have experienced Rachel's LinkedIn training as a 121 session and within a group environment - both are excellent as is when she has given presentations at networking events. Rachel has great depth to her knowledge of LinkedIn and applies this to your business so that you gain the maximum benefit from her training.

    I asked Rachel to give me a 1-2-1 orientation sessions on Linkedin, its functionality, recruitment options and just generally improving my knowledge. Rachel is excellent at taking you through one step at a time, ensuring you learn as you go and is always taking your training needs into account. The session was informative, fun and Rachel articulates extremely well how it all works and she is also very patient, which helped me enormously. I would highly recommend Rachel to any business or professional person wanting to get more out of their Linkedin activity.

    Developing and Inspiring People and Businesses to Grow and Succeed

    Rachel has a pragmatic approach to her training, and had clearly done her research before I arrived for my session. She made some very sensible suggestions about how to change my profile to become more business focussed and less of an online CV. I implemented some of these during the training session and came away with a list of actions, which I’m gradually working my way through. As a trainer myself, I particularly liked Rachel’s style of working and appreciated her practical and constructive suggestions. I would definitely recommend Rachel to anyone who wants to learn how to make the most of LinkedIn for their business.
