 JWCC Offering LinkedIn for Business Class on April 27

 A LinkedIn for Business class is being offered by John Wood Community College Business and Industry Training on Tuesday, April 27, from 9 am to noon. The class is open to the public, no application is necessary, but individuals are required to make a reservation to attend.  The class will take place at JWCC’s Workforce Development Center, 4220 Kochs Lane, Quincy.

Many people may think of LinkedIn as an online job site, but it is so much more. In this 3-hour workshop, we’ll help participants transform their profile from a boring resume into a dynamic and effective sales page that drives leads for their business. We’ll show participants how to create a profile layout that works as a sales and marketing page, get LinkedIn to notify their contacts of latest products and services for free, where to put their most popular services so they show up in LinkedIn searches, when and how to use a Business Page, posts vs. articles and how to use each, using groups to increase their reach and results, and how to tell if one of LinkedIn’s paid options is right for them. We’ll be using real examples of what works and if participants want to get “hands-on,” they can follow along with their own profile live.

The course will be presented by Andrew Skattebo with BrickStreet Data Systems. Participants are asked to wear face coverings and social distancing will be maintained. The cost is $65 per person. For more information or to RSVP, contact the Workforce Development Center at 217-641-4971 or email wdc@jwcc.edu.
