Posted by on Mar 4, 2013 in Career, Consulting, resources | 0 comments

Here’s another, little known thing you can do with help from LinkedIn: create an engaging About Us page for your company, bio or your job search/resume site. LinkedIn’s timeline app is cool and something with which many of us could find lots of other interesting uses. To see a timeline that’s already been generated, you can view mine from 2012 2013 below (Quicktime needed and check your browser — definitely Safari friendly): LinkedIn_timeline_video_Sandyjk_2012 SandyJK_LinkedIn_Timeline_2013 Here’s a screen grab of what you’ll see in case you have browser...

If you haven’t set up a PUBLIC profile on LinkedIn, it’s time.

For the next 6 weeks, and for 2 days out of each week, I’m offering friends of friends and/or my Seattle contacts a 50 minute career search or biz dev strategy session for only $50. WE ARE SOLD OUT! THANK YOU FOR ALL THE REFERRALS! Why 50-4-50? Because over the past (almost) 5 years, as many of your know, or have personally experienced, I have acquired a considerable amount of social capital in, and knowledge of the Puget Sound market. So, for a few personal as well as professional reasons, I want to share what I can with those that need it before July 1st. And, just in...
