LinkedIn BootCamp – Are You Attracting Your Audience?


LinkedIn Boot Camp  – Are You Attracting Your Audience? Join us for a live, interactive online meeting on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 7PM ET.

Optimize your use of the professional networking website LinkedIn and develop your networking experience. Great for entrepreneurs, career changers, employees looking to make a change within their company, job seekers, and any one looking to “boost” your profile.

  • Don’t miss our popular free interactive, online workshop to get your message to your audience on  LinkedIn! 

This workshop differs from workshops that may be held at your local recreation department or library that are presented by social media and computer trainers that may not have hiring experience.   We bring hiring professionals with their experience and insights to our program.

Presented by Mimi Fuger, Executive Director of Career Transitions Center, who presented this workshop to standing room audiences at our Career Transitions Center Series, “Next Steps-to-Go at the Library” with Kent District Libraries (KDL). We are opening up access online to accommodate the high degree of interest from people that found travel and time to attend on-site workshops an obstacle to attendance. You can now join us from the comfort of your home.

We will cover:

  • Setting up an effective profile and managing your Settings.
  • Choosing Groups that fit your networking strategy
  • Managing your contacts and firing up your network.

New Programs for Fall 2016!


In response to the feedback we have received on our programs, we are making changes to our programs. The most significant changes are, lower costs for “One-to-One” coaching and “Taking Charge of Your Future” and online workshops available to anyone regardless of geographic location.

We are able to make these changes due to support from small private donors who believe in the work we do. Many of these donors are former clients of Career Transitions Center WMI. They believe through experience our programs for job seekers and those considering a career change and allowing us to serve those outside the Greater Grand Rapids area. We are grateful for these supporters that are assuring the sustainability of our organization.

We will still provide our popular free programs, “Next Steps to Go”. These are interactive small group meetings held on line so we can learn how we can best support you wherever you are living and where you are in your career.  We realize that there is nothing like personal interaction, however we are inviting our friends and supporters on the Lakeshore or in any location in West Michigan to join us for these informative web meetings!
