successfully after the shock/turbulence of a downsizing event.
Compared to many outplacement providers, our services are intensely customized and are centered around providing our clients with sophisticated modern job-finding tools, methods, and resources that greatly speed up the transition process--and go well beyond the traditional "career center" model of providing assistance.

Despite a flood of imitators, nobody has yet invented a more powerful website for facilitating career and business networking success than LinkedIn.com. And yet, many people still haven't heard of this revolutionary tool -- or may have joined the site years ago, without really understanding it or learning how to harness its full potential.
In light of these realities, Career Horizons will be hosting an upcoming two-hour webinar dedicated to getting people up and running successfully on the LinkedIn system. This training, which you can take from the comfort of your own home, is designed for beginning-to-intermediate users and will provide detailed instruction on how the system works, including guidance on how to optimize your LinkedIn Profile, Invite other users to connect, how (and why) to network via Groups, and how to take advantage of some of the other key features and functionality of the site. What's more, we'll be covering a wealth of important pointers on system etiquette that new users often violate, inadvertently.
The cost for this webinar is $75 and following completion of the session, all participants will be e-mailed a full copy of the presentation materials, which include numerous additional networking scripts and case studies that will help you master the site and learn to use it like a pro!
