Prereqs & Preparation

Participants should have a LinkedIn account, and sign-in emails / passwords. Please install the LinkedIn app on your smartphone as well.

We’ll be working both with paper worksheets and online, so bring a laptop / smartphone to access your account. You may wish to bring a recent copy of your resume, although it’s not required.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Adjust your privacy settings prior to the workshop. If you plan to implement refined language and optimization tips in real-time during the workshop, please adjust your privacy settings in advance by disabling “sharing profile edits.” This prevents your entire network receiving activity broadcasts as you tinker under the hood and refine copy. Find here info on how to change this privacy setting.
