LinkedIn for high school and college students

? You’re thinking about college. Did you know there are over 6 million admissions counselors from different colleges on LinkedIn? Have you thought about reaching out to them?

? You just came home from college. Or, maybe you’re a parent, and your child just finished school and s/he is ready to move back home.

? Did you know that 85% of jobs filled today are through networking?

? What if you took a 4-6 year window time-frame to learn about a specific career and industry?

? What if you used those 4 years to build out your network so by the time you finish high school or college you already have a built-in network to help you find an internship or a new job?

Get Ahead Now

Don’t be the young adult who sends out résumés only to find out that they end up in the rejection pile because a computer didn’t pick up your keywords.

? You don’t want to wait for hiring managers to call you.

? Odds are, if you have no solid connections to a company, you’re going to have a much more challenging time finding a job. Why? Hiring is not what it used to be, and sending out cold résumés with no warm connections or referrals doesn’t work anymore.

? You don’t want to be saddled with debt, a degree and no job.

? And, neither do your parents or guardians.

? Step back and begin now.

? If you want to find success, it’s not only about what you know–most importantly, it’s who you know. And, getting started with creating critical business relationships should begin now.

Did you know that over 90% of recruiters find their talent on LinkedIn? And, right now is the best time to begin your professional journey.

Why work with me? There are thousands of LinkedIn coaches..

Yes, there are a lot of people who call themselves LinkedIn coaches. However, my history with the company goes back to 2012.

I’m a certified teacher with an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Development. I have been teaching for many years.

Some notables that make me different than the coaches you’ll find on LinkedIn:

  • I’ve been beta testing for LinkedIn since 2012.
  • I’ve helped the company build in such areas as mobile, publishing, LinkedIn Learning, apps, Pulse and more.
  • In 2012, LinkedIn shared my career story on their member blog and on Slideshare. The deck I created for LinkedIn “Ten Ways LinkedIn Changed My Life In One Year,” has been shared across the globe and within universities over 450,000 times.
  • In 2013, LinkedIn named me as one out of three members in their 200-million member press release.
  • In 2016, LinkedIn named me as “Someone to Follow” with leading educators such as Hadi Partovi and Vivek Wadhwa. Please see image below.
  • Last year, LinkedIn named me the #1 Top Voice in Education out of 500 million people.
  • I have unique insight into how to best use LinkedIn to build your personal brand, grow your business, and position yourself as a thought-leader in your niche.
  • I currently have over 230,000 followers on the platform. However, those are not numbers, those are people and relationships.
  • I’m also a writer who contributes to Forbes covering the intersection of education and entrepreneurship.
