April 19th Topic: The Other LinkedIn, The Mobile App
Presenter: Bruce Bixler. Fact: 57% of LinkedIn activity is on the mobile app. There are more settings on the mobile app than on the desktop. LinkedIn has new settings for advertising and jobs, all slanted in LinkedIn's favor. Do you know all 66 LinkedIn security and privacy settings? Bruce has been on LinkedIn since 2009 when he lost his job and has been teaching LinkedIn since 2010. LinkedIn has recognized him as an expert in visual media, LinkedIn product and mentoring, and LinkedIn groups.
Digital Headshots for LinkedIn, Business Cards, & more!
Want a professional headshot, but don't want to pay $150 to get it?
Wheaton Masonic Lodge 269 pays for our meeting space every month. They also donate to the local food pantry, sponsor high school academic programs, and raise funds for many other charities. What they DON'T do often is raise money for themselves!
So immediately after our meeting they will be taking digital headshots for job seekers with professional lighting, a backdrop, camera, and a Photoshop expert to produce quality images. For a donation of $40 to Wheaton Lodge 269 (cash only), you will get a headshot for LinkedIn, and a template to use it for Vistaprint Business Cards.
They will only be taking pictures from 1pm to 2pm, so please indicate on your RSVP if you want one. Thank you!
Meets: 3rd Thursday every month from 12:00pm to 12:50pm to discuss networking tactics and search strategies. Each presenter will close the meeting with an exercise for the attendees to use in the real world. Meetings are FREE to attend in person.
Can't be there in person? If you don't live close enough to attend, or the timing doesn't work for you, you can become an online member!
