With over 450 million users (statista, 2016), LinkedIn has become the world’s largest and most influential professional network. Unlike social networks, LinkedIn is used by professionals to post their professional profiles and connect with other professionals and conduct business.
If you’re looking for a new role you can’t afford not to be using LinkedIn and best of all, it’s free! (Basic account). Latest statistics revealed that more than 90% of recruiters and employers now use LinkedIn as a recruitment tool. This ranges from trawling profiles to seek out talent to checking out a candidate’s LinkedIn profile during the recruitment process. There’s no doubt about it, LinkedIn has become one of the most powerful tools in job seekers’ toolbox.
Whether you’re a graduate taking your first steps into the world of work or a seasoned professional looking to take your career to new heights, LinkedIn coaching can help. If you are self-employed or seeking out new business, LinkedIn can bring you more business and help you promote your product or services.
LinkedIn coaching will show you the most successful strategies to help you stand out from the crowd and highlight your USPs (unique selling points). It’s not just about completing your profile effectively, but using LinkedIn’s features fully to optimise your profile helping you to be found by recruiters and employers.

I didn’t understand much about LinkedIn until I had a coaching session with Lisa who gave me the grand tour and helped me understand how it all worked. I saw the light and now have a LinkedIn profile that I’m actually proud of. Not only have I received numerous job offers through LinkedIn but I’ve made some really good contacts that have helped my career.
I had a stagnant LinkedIn profile for years that did little for my career. I was amazed at the transformation after the 1:2:1 LinkedIn coaching session I had with Lisa. I now understand the principles behind how LinkedIn works and most importantly how to make it work for me.
