The OA is once again running LinkedIn workshops at Catterick Garrison.
They will be led by respected social media consultant, Lincoln Coutts. Whether you are serving, in transition or have already left the military, LinkedIn is an important digital networking tool and an essential element of your online brand.
Lincoln has more than 14 years of HR consulting experience and 10 years in social media. He has trained more than 7,000 people in the essentials of LinkedIn. Attendees will learn how to get started, improve their profile and get networking. It is very much an interactive session so laptops and other devices are welcome to edit while you learn.
Liz Stevens, OA Head of Employment Services, said: “LinkedIn is an important tool what ever the stage of your career. Used effectively, it can help you meet the right people; discover opportunities and gain crucial industry insight. With the platform changing regularly, these workshops will be of equal relevance to those just starting out and anyone looking to get some more advanced tips on how to maximise their impact.”
The OA is a charity that supports serving and former officers to find new careers after leaving the military. It recently opened a regional office in York, providing confidential, impartial and practical advice on all aspects of transition and employment to the local officer community. Service leavers can access jobs and training opportunities, including weekly webinars and networking events.
The workshops are open to all serving and retired officers as well as their spouses or partners. Free to attend, they take place on Wednesday 29th November, at Catterick Garrison. There are two sessions, with more spaces available in the afternoon slot of 14:00-17:00.
