Here’s what some attendees of the live event had to say:

  • “The view from a recruiter on how they use LinkedIn includes much info we as job-hunters don’t know or prioritize differently and perhaps incorrectly.”
  • “It was the best webinar I’ve ever attended on LinkedIn!”
  • “This is by far the BEST LinkedIn webinar that I have attended. Chalked full of information and how to’s, along with specific word choices to get the best response when networking with people. Pat’s no nonsense approach and servant’s heart really showed. Great insight to a moving target in business!”
