Jobs Driven Networking Group Wheaton, ILMarch 21st Topic: How to USE LinkedIn Proactively
Presenter: Paul Cameron, President of DriveStaff and Founder of SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com
Why did you create a LinkedIn profile? Was it to help more salespeople find you, or to help more employers find you? If you’re getting more sales calls than employer calls, this meeting will help. We will also show you how to easily identify which “LinkedIn Experts” truly know their stuff, and which are just trying to sell you stuff.
Once your profile is solid, it’s critical to USE it proactively to maximize its value. Having an awesome race car sitting in your driveway won’t help you win any races; you need to get behind the wheel and drive it! Paul will show you how to USE LinkedIn strategically to create warm leads consistently, and how to help more employers find you.
Paul will also show you the step by step processes and tools he uses as a recruiter to get his daily LinkedIn work done quickly so he can get OUT of LinkedIn and back ON the phone recruiting.
LinkedIn is important, but it shouldn’t rule your day. Join us Thursday to learn how to use it proactively and efficiently.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Paul Cameron can be reached at [email protected].
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, bringing your ticket is not required.
What are my parking options?
There is a free (but small) parking lot connected to the building, free parking on the street, and a very large parking garage with 300 free parking spots one block West on Wesley St.
If the Mason parking lot is full (it usually is), then exit the lot, take a left, go to the next block and take a left to the lot. The arrows below animate this exciting journey to the big parking garage.
It’s 3-minute walk away, a 5-minute stroll, and 10-minute meander. Go at your own pace. See you Thursday!
