Coffee, Connections & Conversations: How to Harness LinkedIn in 2021

Online • Nashville

Join us to hear from Cathy Grimes as she leads a guided discussion about LinkedIn in 2021 - how to harness its potential to stand out, get promoted, and grow connections. Because you're worth it.


Wed, Apr 14, 2021 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM CDT


It's crucial to understand that LinkedIn has evolved past just being a place to load your Resumé. It's now your online career reputation and you need to present yourself in a human-centered way with an engaging, compelling profile.

Cathy will explain how to use LinkedIn effectively to:

  • Stand out in a sea of candidates
  • Raise your profile
  • Increase visibility and credibility
  • Get found by potential employers and colleagues
  • Grow an engaged audience and network
  • Get referrals from people that know, like, and trust you 

She'll cover the various profile page elements and optimal ways to position yourself. Plus share best practices and how LinkedIn has changed and how to harness its potential in 2021. 

The pie is smaller at the moment with more candidates chasing fewer roles - the importance of referrals has increased exponentially. This is where LinkedIn comes into its own if used effectively.

I am registered for this event; unfortunately I now have to cancel due to conflict. I hope this is one that will come around again.

Hello! I was six minutes late to join and not able to find the zoom link on this page. Perhaps the link locks out after a certain time. I will try to catch the next event - thanks!

@Jessica Shoemaker - I'm sorry for the technical issues. The link should have been available after you registered (deadline was yesterday) and would have been in your email sent yesterday. We decided to record today's coffee, since it was chock full of great tips!
