Land the Perfect Job with LinkedIn

by Mark T. Davis
Very through, extensive, informative, and professional - enjoyed it thoroughly and gleaned a lot of great actionable information - thank you, I thought it was very well done!

I think the title is insightful for what the video is.

by Andrew Rosenberg
It gave me great information on how to leverage my Linkedin to get the job that I want.

Amazing Course

by Olga Dernovska
I could not even imagine that one course can have so much useful information. Some of the things I learned were completely shock for me. I never looked at the process of the job search from the recruiter's side. From this course, I found out that some of the things that I thought are important are not even visible to recruiters! I learned how to go higher on their search lists, and how to gain their attention.

by Roland TAMBOU

Informative, to the point

by Cao Pham
I thought I already had an all-star profile, but Break Into Tech made me realize what I've been missing out on and what I am not utilizing to the fullest. I'm going to keep those tips in mind when I continue my job search, starting NOW!

An excellent course for LinkedIn newbies

by Fahim Ud Din
This is an excellent course for LinkedIn newbies, and actually not only for them, even for people like me who had been using LinkedIn naively over the course of many years but not taking full advantage of the platform. Highly recommended

Great Course

by Al Andrews

LinkedIn is SO much more than a "Facebook for work"

by Brandon Sutter
This course was extremely helpful in understanding the true power of networking with LinkedIn. Before starting this course, I never thought much of LinkedIn. In fact I always thought of it as a type of Facebook for work. After completing the course, I now know how wrong I was! Jeremy and Omar break everything down into small, easy to understand lessons. Everything is crystal clear, and there is a fluid progression with actionable steps that can help anyone to build the perfect LinkedIn profile. Since I have completed the course, I added almost 70 new connections, received a 200% increase in profile views, and I was even contacted directly by a recruiter in my industry. I will definitely use LinkedIn to break into the perfect role at my dream company! Thank you both so much for taking the time to create this awesome course.

Great overview of useful Linkedin features

Instructors demonstrated how LinkedIn can be leveraged in all phases of career management and job search; how to conduct exploration and research using the tool was particularly informative.

Linkedin review

by Pamela Howard
I thought the course was very purposeful and is certainly a method to help me utilize the tool of job search that is Linkedin. I really enjoyed the videos, and appreciated the screen shots and breakdown step-by-step method that was used. I am now making connections and on my way thanks to the course. I am recommending it to a few colleagues that have been out of the loop for a while, this is certainly not only helpful to students but to those re-entering the market as well. Thank you!!

Review of LinkedIn tutorial

by Thomas Hatley
I found the tutorial very well done, I like how it is broken into sections; this makes digesting the information quite a lot easier. I also really love that one video will explain an idea and how it helps one get jobs through LinkedIn and the following video is a step by step on how to do this technique followed by a summary page of the technique, I feel like that sandwiched technique really adds to one's ability to absorb and really understand the information.

Great tips and tools to build a job seeking strategy

Very useful, hands-on advice for job hunting on LinkedIn

by Katharina Kopf
This is a very detailed exploration of how LinkedIn can help you land your dream job. You get useful and practical advice on how to start networking and how to improve your profile so that recruiters actually find you through their various filters. It is well explained and if you follow all the steps it will most likely increase your chances to land an interview (if you know which company/companies you want to work for, and which roles to target).

Great Course for soon to be MBA Graduates

by Crystal Green
I took this course as a part of a course during my MBA Program. This course transformed by Linkedin profile and already have exponentially more profile views than I did before. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to revamp their Linkedin profile and get noticed!

A thorough and clear guide to LinkedIn

by James Robinson
I completed this course in preparation for beginning my MBA program. I've spent a good amount of time on LinkedIn over the past year, but even for someone who's invested energy on the site there were valuable insights. The demonstration of advanced Boolean searches and the explanation of the importance of key words were particularly useful. Also their demonstrations of research techniques changed how I'll go about establishing connections and preparing for interviews. The hosts are also engaging so even relatively dry topics move along. The only slight downside of the course is that many topics are covered from a high level, and so further research/reading might be needed to really get into specific topics (e.g. 48 Ways to Make your Headline Shine!). Still this is a great course that covers topics anyone serious about LinkedIn needs to know.

Super helpful

by Meghan Ford
This course gives you all the ins and outs of LinkedIn. Even someone who has an all-star profile according to LinkedIn will benefit from going through this course and actually making changes after each step of the process.

Clear and concise explanations with invaluable demos.

Excellent and very insightful.

by Bright Frimpong
The course is the most practical career guidance one would ever get. It is just incredible.

Succinct, Clear, Informative

by Katy Montgomery
"Land a Great Job with LinkedIn" was a great online course. In under two hours, job searchers will find LinkedIn easy to navigate. What distinguishes this LinkedIn tutorial, is the insider's view of how employers/recruiters use LinkedIn to find candidates. Understanding how the LinkedIn algorithm works and how to make the most of keywords, job titles, headlines, and skills to get noticed by recruiters was incredibly useful. Job searchers, having completed this training, leave with practical and relevant information that can be implemented immediately.

Well worth your time!

Your Fast Track to LinkedIn Mastery!

by Tarek Hassan
Maybe LinkedIn has grown into complex website and app, same story as in Facebook. To make things worse, it's new interface and many functionalities have been shuffled thus turning us - loyal users - into big ignorants in one night! But worry no more, this course takes you by hand so you regain your familiarity (or get familiar) with this mine of gold and learn fantastic strategies and techniques that go beyond the apparent interface of LinkedIn! Highly recommended...
