FIR Presents LinkedConversations with Chuck Hester, Episode 4: December 28, 2013

FIR Presents LinkedConversations with Chuck HesterWelcome to the latest episode of LinkedConversations with Chuck Hester.

Welcome to the latest episode of LinkedConversations with Chuck Hester.In this episode I take a look at LinkedIn University Pages, a feature that offers information on academic institutions, similar to LinkedIn Company pages. Read about them in Linked In’s blog post from this Fall.

I also talk about the lowering of the LinkedIn age limit in the use to 14, and how that can help high schoolers with their college application process.

My special guest this week is Kelly Crowley, a public policy & program administration consultant; 4 time medal-winning Paralympic athlete and Varsity Coach at Stanford Community Recreation Association.

She is also Owner/President of Sportonic, an organization that consults with ParaSport clubs and sports organizations on cost-effective programs and policies to provide a full range of integrated sport opportunities for recreational to elite athletes with disabilities.
Kelly and I discuss how to use video in your profile. As a result of her videos, Kelly was singled out by LinkedIn as a great example of how to use this feature. We’ll also talk about using LinkedIn to get new business.

Finally, I explain why the week between Christmas and New Years is the optimum time to use LinkedIn.
