Topic: Making your Linked-In profile Attractive to Recruiters and Hiring Managers

We all struggle to know if our Linked-In profiles are built to attract recruiters' attention. What do recruiters want to see in a profile? How should the profile be arranged? What are key words to use—and to avoid? Robert Half recruiters will help you hands-on with your profile. The session will start with a brief outline of key tests to give your profile, and how to improve it. Then, Robert Half recruiters will work with you at your laptop on your profile—helping to tell your story. So, bring your laptop, and, plan to leave with a profile revved up to catch recruiter attention.
