Using Social Media for Employment Searches
Amanda Ellis, Esq. is a published author and accomplished legal recruiter who frequently speaks at law schools across the country regarding how law students and attorneys may incorporate social networking in their job search. Ellis will focus on the “Big 3” sites – Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter- and will discuss such issues as maximizing your online profile, how to tell if an employer or recruiter viewed your LinkedIn profile, how to add contacts to your network before you them, etc.
Ellis will be doing a “live makeover” of a 2011 alumnae’s LinkedIn profile, and will also demonstrate how she worked with a current Pitt Law student to create a “polished” LinkedIn profile.
