Maximizing LinkedIn: Job Search

Wendy Stackhouse of LA Fellows Cohort 2 is now working as a Social Media Consultant for Artisan Creative, Alliance Environmental Group, and AirTek Indoor Air Solutions and as a freelance blogger for various other clients. She also volunteers as a Web Content Development Instructor for the California-Pacific Conference of the United Methodist Church. She has been writing a series on how to maximize LinkedIn on Artisan's blog and this week's post discusses how to use LinkedIn for Job Search. She gladly gives credit for her expertise to LA Fellows Instructor Larry Braman and Cohort 2 Member Jay Bernard.

She recently wrote,  "I didn’t sign up with LinkedIn until I was looking for a job. I hadn’t even really heard of it when I was working in the non-profit sector and busy with the many hats I wore there. I should have signed up earlier."
