THIS WORKSHOP HAS ALREADY BEEN HELD. If you purchase this, you will receive a video and materials from the workshop.

  • Would you like to look for non-academic jobs but feel uncertain how?

  • Does your “To Do List” for the summer include “Make a LinkedIn Profile”?

  • Do you identify as an academic and feel allergic to the idea of marketing yourself via social media?

What would it be like if you could actually enjoy the experience of using a social network and network without pain?

In this workshop, Dr. Yamamoto will share her tips and tricks for using LinkedIn. As a former academic she has used the platform to find opportunities, network with folks who do work like her and grow her online and offline presence. She will share suggestions on how to make your profile look appealing to recruiters, what kinds of content will get people to pay attention to you and how to do this all even when you don’t know what you want to do next.

The cost is a sliding scale based on what you are able to pay $15, $25 or $35 which includes a recording of the workshop. If you purchase a spot and are unable to attend, we will share the recording with you via email.

Abbie (Miyabi) Yamamoto received her PhD in Japanese and Korean literatures and cultures in 2011 and taught for four years and two summers at four different institutions. After determining that this was not the most sustainable path for her, she decided to see what the rest of the world had to offer. Abbie has been active on “the new LinkedIn” since 2017 shortly after its acquisition by Microsoft. Her profile is viewed by more than 400 people per 90-day period and she has been able to capture business and collaboration opportunities through using LinkedIn and other social media and in-person networking.
