I would never have known standing up this August at Tribe and asking Stu the question:“ What is your advice for using LinkedIn?” and getting a slip of paper from you with a note saying you had expertise with LinkedIn would get me here less than 6 months later.
After following your step-by step method and taking the time to really focus on my LinkedIn profile, I wanted to reach out to you to let you know the impact your program has had on my journey.
I came to the group and was not sure what I wanted to get out of it, but knew I wanted a change. I thought I’d revamp my LinkedIn profile and see what shook out.
So I did the work on my profile and allowed myself to be open to the mindset work you included. Here are the two biggest lessons learned:
Reminding myself of the great work I’ve done AND who I am gave me more confidence, strength, and the courage to voice who I am in my profile. I truly believe that others can feel my confidence which attracts opportunities.
What I didn’t expect was to have recruiters reaching out to me to apply for opportunities with starting salaries $20K-$65K higher than my current salary. Lesson Learned: Never undervalue my skills…I am a badass in my field.
I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to use Linked in to make an impact on their career journey, whatever it may be.
