Brown Bag Lunch Seminar: The new LinkedIn

In early 2017, LinkedIn began the staggered roll-out of a new user interface for the platform, with the stated goal of unifying the look and feel of the website and mobile app. This roll-out is now complete.

This seminar will provide an overview of changes in the interface. It will give a good introduction to LinkedIn for new users (how to improve personal presence and “brand management”), and a useful refresher to those who've been using LinkedIn for some time. Topics covered will include:

This content of this seminar is not set in stone. What is covered will depend on questions posed by participants. Come prepared to learn and ask about:

  • Creating an impactful LinkedIn profile,
  • Developing and enhancing your visibility and reputation by engaging effectively with connections and others,
  • Networking and connecting strategically to research job and organization options, find career direction and get referrals, and
  • "Where's my Stuff?" An overview of changes for those familiar with the "old" LinkedIn.
