LinkedIn is much more than a job search board, profile, and social media feed. It’s an essential tool for UX professionals who want to level up their professional development and create their own career opportunities. It’s the premier professional networking platform where people at any point in their career journey can share their ideas with the world, connect with peers, and establish a professional reputation.
The biggest challenge is can be figuring out what to talk about, how to say it, who your audience is, and how to bring this all together into an intentional practice that serves both you and the UX community.
On August 25th, 2022, I will be leading a 2-hour interactive workshop focused on the why, what, and how of engaging on LinkedIn with valuable, authentic, and original content. We’ll go beyond the basics and straight to the strategy of using this platform to establish and nurture meaningful relationships, build professional credibility, support our peers, attract opportunities, and impact the rapidly evolving practice of UX.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased on Eventbrite. The event is being hosted by the formidable Ladies that UX Atlanta! LUXA is a network of diverse women, femmes, and non-binary people offering a supportive environment geared toward building relationships, career development, and community learning.
