Accelerate Your Career with LinkedIn

Thursday 18 April 2024; 12:00 to 1:00 PM Eastern time

Every minute, eight people are hired on LinkedIn and millions of jobs are posted there. This makes LinkedIn a powerful tool for technical communicators looking for a job or freelance work. Showcase your skills, experience, and competency by learning the three steps to success on LinkedIn:

  1. Develop a complete profile with relevant keywords
  2. Build a big, relevant network
  3. Be active. 

Get practical tips on each step and examples of what to do and what not to do, so you can rank higher when employers and clients are searching for help or evaluating job candidates. Even if you’re not looking for a job or freelance work now, optimizing your profile, building your network, and being active will make it much easier when you are ready.



  • Craft a profile that will attract and keep the attention of employers or clients.
  • Build a network that will help you rank higher in search results.
  • Demonstrate your expertise and authority.


Attendee Takeaways:

  • Many employers and clients are using Linked to find employees and freelancers.
  • More employers or clients will find you and perceive you as competent if you optimize your profile, build your network, and are active on LinkedIn.
  • It only takes about one hour a week on LinkedIn to get results.


For current CPTC certificants: This webinar provides 2 CEUs for recertification, in the Content Development, Content Management, and Written Communication core competency areas.
