Oct. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- NOVATO, Calif. -- LinkedIn continues to dominate the Web as the world's largest professional networking destination with more than 175 million members in 200 countries. More professionals are making LinkedIn their first stop when they have to research a new job prospect or career opportunity, but most executives only use a fraction of LinkedIn's capabilities. In the October session of Experts Connection (http://www.experts-connection.com), headhunter and social media expert Jim Durbin will present "LinkedIn for Executives: The Basics" with practical strategies and dos and don'ts to help executives get the most out of their LinkedIn engagement. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, October 24 from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. ET, (1:00 - 2:30 p.m. PT), and is sponsored by NETSHARE® (http://www.netshare.com).

More users are turning to LinkedIn to manage their professional connections, but the scope and diversity of LinkedIn offer so much more than basic contact information. LinkedIn can help you research potential employers, learn more about a target industry, prepare for an interview, and much more. No matter what your career objective, LinkedIn can be an invaluable tool once you understand how to use it.

In this webinar, Jim will explain how to optimize LinkedIn for your specific goals, including how to change the way you network. The presentation will include:

- How to create a professional profile that promotes a positive, searchable personal brand identity;
- Criteria for contacts to add to your network, and who to keep out;
- How to use LinkedIn’s search tools for your next career move;
- The three biggest mistakes your colleagues are making on LinkedIn;
- How to research competitors for better business intelligence; and
- How to communicate effectively using your LinkedIn network.

"LinkedIn continues to gain momentum as the first resource people turn to when they want to advance their career," said Katherine Simmons, CEO of NETSHARE and host of the Experts Connection webinar series. "Using LinkedIn effectively gives you an advantage that other job seekers may be missing. This webinar will provide all the basics you need to apply LinkedIn to meet your career goals."

The Experts Connection teleseminar series gives executives access to leading career experts. The cost of the seminar is $60, $50 for NETSHARE members, and access is provided via web and telephone. For more information, visit the Experts Connection online at http://www.experts-connection.com.
