Holistic Career Coaching….for savvy 21st century nurses!
LinkedIn is the most powerful online platform for building a robust professional network, meeting like-minded professionals, and creating a visible profile that highlights your successes, achievements, and special skills. LinkedIn is actually a powerful search engine disguised as a social media platform. For building an authentic network, there’s nothing like it.
As far as I can tell, I’m the only LinkedIn expert on the Internet who is also a nurse and nurse entrepreneur.
I understand the worlds of healthcare and nursing, and I can help you to leverage your assets in order to create a robust and powerful network of like-minded professionals.
Nursing and healthcare are volatile professions, and even though you may be happy in your current position, the marketplace is constantly in flux. You always want your Linked In profile to be current, welcoming, well-written, and comprehensive. I can help you to create exactly that!
- Many employers who receive your resume or application will immediately look you up on LinkedIn to assess your professional standing and how you present yourself to the world.
- Some companies no longer accept resumes, and instead require applicants to utilize their LinkedIn profile as their resume. This practice is likely to become more common.
- LinkedIn has more than 400 million users.
- Dozens of specialized LinkedIn groups are visited by thousands of nurses and healthcare professionals every day.
- LinkedIn now has an internal publishing platform that allows users to post original content that can reach millions of readers.
- With rich media formatting, you can now add videos, documents, and other multimedia enhancements to your profile in order to more fully demonstrate your expertise and experience.
- Many users simply don’t know how to effectively use the LinkedIn platform.
- Most people create a LinkedIn profile and subsequently ignore it.
- Professionals who are content in their current jobs fail to see the benefit in fostering a large, robust professional network, with an eye toward the future.
- Many people erroneously see LinkedIn as simply an “online resume”.
- Linked In users often “collect” connections and contacts, but do nothing to feed and water those relationships over time.
- Users do too much self-promotion and not enough promoting of others (this is a rampant practice on most social media platforms).
- Not following up is one of the cardinal sins of networking (this is also rampant).
- There’s no excuse for networking in a way that doesn’t foster real relationships.
- Valuable online “real estate” is wasted by so many users who don’t know better.
Building a robust online professional network is in your best interests as a savvy 21st-century nurse and healthcare professional. Allow me to guide you in maximizing your use of this powerful platform!
