Excellent presentation of the use of and configuration of LinkedIn. The slides and hints to important but not fully known configurations is important (like making a small correction and everyone thinking its a new job).

This is a very basic overview of LinkedIn and good for the new user. I was expecting to learn something new. So, it's fine but not really full of "Insider Secrets". Also, could have been condensed to 30 minutes.

Loved that Cindy showed us how to turn off activity broadcasting. I have showed this to many other colleagues who had been bombarding me (and all of their connections) with constant profile update notifications.

This is a highly applicable course and is well presented by Ms. Kraft. I actually verified and updated my profile while listening and following her guidance. That is what I call truly relevant education!

The statistics were very interesting. I don't think there were any surprises for me. I think this course benefits everyone but job seekers in particular should take this douse.

I have had many recruiters reach out to me on LinkedIn, even though I am not currently looking, it is good to know what I need to do to clean up my LinkedIn page.

Very well organized. Much more than the Title of the Course. I found it useful in learning how to better navigate the LinkedIn site.

Thank you Cindy for putting together a great class! Could you let me know a good way to vet the recruiters regarding a job search?

You are welcome. That is a great question, Stephen!

You can feel very confident to vet recruiters just as you would any other service provider you would choose to use. I think the first vetting is whether they are a contingency or retained recruiter. That, in and of itself will tell you much.

Check their Linkedin profiles - with whom are they connected? What do their recommendations say? This might give you some folks with whom you can connect and talk with regarding their experience working with that recruiter

Ask the recruiter how many placements they've had in the past year and over a 3-year period, whom were they placing, and with what kinds of companies.

Hopefully, that will get you started!
