Notes from the call:

Do you think you know how to use LinkedIn? Are you comfortable with networking? Learn how to get more from Linked In with Marty Czebotar. Learn what you need to know to be a successful networker – when you're job hunting – and after you've landed your next position.

Outline and Notes:
Items discussed on call include:
Feeling "stuck" in your job search? Finding it hard to move on from the job you had to the job you want?

Your professional relationships are key to your professional success. Linked In's mission is to help you be more effective in your daily work and open doors to opportunities using the professional relationships you already have. This isn't networking—it's what networking should be. Forget exchanging business cards with acquaintances that don't know your work, or trying to renew professional ties when you need a favor.

Through your network you can:
• Find potential clients, service providers, subject experts, and partners who come recommended
• Be found for business opportunities
• Search for great jobs
• Discover inside connections that can help you land jobs and close deals
• Post and distribute job listings
• Find high-quality passive candidates
• Get introduced to other professionals through the people you know
