Social networking in business happens on LinkedIn. For individuals it is a place to showcase work experience and make connections with other professionals. For companies it is another venue to post jobs and identify qualified applicants. Join us when technology instructor Susan McAteer reviews LinkedIn basics, including: polishing your profile, using key words to get your profile included in search results, using LinkedIn Groups, and best practices for inviting and contacting others. This program will take place Tuesday, March 5 at 7:00 pm in the Rotary Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.
