LinkedIn Course and Workshop

About this Event

Looking to master LinkedIn? Participate in a step-by-step course (taken on your own time) followed by a workshop on August 6 where you’ll learn more about using LinkedIn as your personal branding tool, using it as a key part of your job search and more.

This event consists of two parts:

1. Self-taught LinkedIn Guys Course to be completed before August 6

2. Online workshop taking place August 6 at 5:30 p.m. (PDT)

LinkedIn Guys Course

Whether you are planning to stay in your current role, have decided to look for a new role, or are unemployed and looking for employment, your LinkedIn Profile may be the first impression business contacts or employers have of you. It is your brand in the business world.

The LinkedIn Guys have built out a complete, step-by-step online course to mastering LinkedIn - from turning your profile into a recruiter magnet to engaging fellow alumni and connections around the world to help you get your foot in the door.

Think of it as the manual you wish LinkedIn came with - all visually demonstrated, all updated for the latest version of the website. And it's waiting for you here as a complimentary resource for SFU students and alumni. Here is how you access the course:

  • Register on Eventbrite and the link will be sent to you in the next 2-3 business days

Disclaimer: This course recommends loading your contacts into LinkedIn; however, it has been brought to our attention that a standard LinkedIn greeting will be sent to your contacts, which we do not recommend. Please skip this step and send potential connections a personalized greeting instead.

LinkedIn Workshop

As a follow up to the LinkedIn Guys course, Doug Leong from the Graduate Career Management Centre, from SFU’s Beedie School of Business, will be running an optional, but highly recommended LinkedIn workshop on Thursday, August 6th from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m PDT.

The format of this workshop will be a flipped classroom where you work through and complete the LinkedIn course, prior to attending this workshop. The focus of this workshop will be to expand on the topics related to the LinkedIn course, including using LinkedIn as your personal branding tool, and utilizing LinkedIn as a key part of your job search. Please come prepared with any other questions you have related to LinkedIn.
