LinkedIn presentation being held June 12th

June 10, 2012 by  

Ham Lake residents and professionals alike are in luck with both a LinkedIn workshop and a Chamber of Commerce-sponsored summer picnic being held over the course of the next few days.

Simply because people are already familiar with what digital business cards and professional networking sites can do for a company’s online brand, it’s easy to forget that sites like LinkedIn can be used just as easily for finding work. With so many decision makers based on the site, potential openings are sure to be found at some point.

Officially taking place not too far away from here in Osseo on the 12th, “LinkedIn for Job Seekers” aims to provide attendees with all the information that’s needed to find and successfully apply for that dream job when it comes up. Covering subjects that include the best ways to research people and businesses as well as the reasons why LinkedIn is so popular with recruiters, it goes without saying that this content has plenty of practical applications.

Set to begin at 9:00 am, this two and a half hour workshop is one that interested individuals stand to gain from attending.

The following day, the Ham Lake Area Chamber of Commerce will be holding a Summer Picnic Kick Off at 5:30 pm. Being hosted by none other than the Board of Directors, this is another event that looks to give local business owners a chance to network in a relaxed environment. As such, those planning to be at the picnic are being encouraged to come with their business materials in hand.
