This session unlocked the mystery of how to effectively connect with employers while maintaining professional etiquette and following established. It mainly discussed how to connect with people and jobs.
For connecting people in LinkedIn, it is important to bear in mind that quality is more important than quantity and always customize the LinkedIn connection request. For connecting job in LinkedIn, understanding search strategy, such as Spotlight Search and Boolean Search, can be very helpful.
