Friday BBC 21 November 2014 – LinkedIn, Business vs. Social Networking, Revisited

This BBC Friday – PART TWO,  LinkedIn® Revisited!

Halloween a few weeks back, the incomparable Karen Klein ( demonstrated ways to make your LinkedIn® profile spiffy (spiffier) and ready for viewing — by those who want to hire you! It’s always a good idea to visit one’s profile and tweak it, polish it, keep it up-to-date and relevant, whether on LinkedIn® or any other web-presence or social network. 

We will revisit that discussion. One question on the table will be: Should we have a BBC LinkedIn page?

There will also be time for sharing your own LinkedIn® stories and experiences and putting a question on the table … where, maybe, someone will know what to do with it.

So invite your friends and associates to join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
