11/28/16….I have been actively using LinkedIn since 2007, in 2009 I created and facilitated the first, “Getting Started With LinkedIn- How and Why?” class at Right Management, an outplacement services firm, where I was a Career Management Consultant and Trainer. This opened the eyes (and professional doors) for dozens of clients. My work in this area continues today with unquestionable impact. I continue to train individuals, teams, corporations, and university students on this career marketing “must have”.
