  • LinkedIn for Job Seekers – A Virtual Presentation

    Michael Yublosky, Vice President, JEM Consulting div., A-BnC Parties and More, Inc.

    A large percentage of jobs are secured indirectly through a mutual acquaintance who introduces you to a future employer. I know that's a fact from my own personal experience. MORE >

    What can really matter in searching for work is who your connections know and who those connections can introduce you to who may be potential employers.

    LinkedIn is the ideal tool for reinforcing or building those connections through online networking. The platform was originally built to help companies and recruiters find qualified candidates to fill positions and is a search engine similar to Google.

    Therefore, understanding how search engines work can also help leverage LinkedIn to your benefit. It may even enable you to get found on LinkedIn when someone searches for someone to fill a position.

    Wishing and hoping that someone will find you simply doesn't work anymore. You do need a plan, not a nonchalant attitude. Your plan must be coupled with proper strategies and tactics to successfully get found on LinkedIn.

    In my virtual presentation, I will cover the above topics and also touch on target marketing, branding (online image, reputation), increasing visibility, etc. I will also answer questions from job seekers.

    I have been coaching individuals and doing LinkedIn presentations since 2009. In 2017 I was chosen as one of only 10 LinkedIn members in English speaking countries to help facilitate conversations and assist members in the LinkedIn Forums for the community team pilot. The program was extended quarterly after the initial trial for one year when in-house LinkedIn personnel took over.

  • Get your “BUT” out of the way!

    Robb Hill, Founder/President, R Hill Enterprises Inc

    We all have those awesome thoughts dripping with possibility, we get a smile on our face and consider how nice it would be then, out of nowhere comes "BUT". The whole show stops when the "BUT" gets in the way. The thinking then turns to all the reasons why we "CAN'T" realize the vision that we were given. We must not let what we can't do get in the way of what we can do. For me this has made all the difference. There was a time in my life when it seemed that failure was following me around however, that was not the case, you see; I was following failure around. I was being mis-informed by mis-informed people. This realization has made all the difference in my life. MORE >

    Association

    I spent a lot of time in bad company;

    I thought it was with friends, but they were robbing me;

    By choice so many times I let them, steal my day;

    I was robbing them too, in exactly the same way;

    As I’ve grown older with the passage of time;

    And the ladder of success, I started to climb;

    And oh how I wanted my friends to go;

    In the midst of their comfort, to life they said no;

    I started reading books, I found myself inside the zone;

    Anything worthwhile is never accomplished alone;

    This statement spoke volumes and resonated in my head;

    For in order to lead, you must first be led;

    With the law of association at the forefront of my mind,

    My past associations, I had to leave them all behind;

    To seek out those that shared my desire;

    For achievement in life that was several levels higher;

    For life is lived on levels and arrived at in stages;

    A simple fact that I learned, cause I kept turning pages;

    As I write these words, to the past that I look;

    My very first mentor was in the form of a book;

    His name is David Schwartz and doctor is his gig;

    He spoke to me through the pages of, The Magic of Thinking Big.
