“I have just finished the most informative and educational tutorial by Dawn on the varied benefits of using LinkedIn and how best to optimize what it offers. I attended her beginning training many months ago and was so excited to hear that she was offering an advanced session. I walked away with so much to not only optimize MY profile, but also how to be effective with my connections.
I would check off every attribute but LinkedIn would only let me choose 3. I highly recommend Dawn and her services to my friends and collegues.
