SUCCESS Workshop

3rd October, 2019 - 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM

How to Write Persuasive LinkedIn Messages, Targeted Email, and Thank-You Notes

A productive job search involves a great deal of writing, for example: 1) setting up a meeting with a LinkedIn connection 2) following up with a hiring manager after an interview, or 3) enlisting the help of people in your network to find employment. What you write makes a difference to everyone – the difference between opening doors or being ignored. Discover techniques and templates that you can adapt for many writing scenarios – and make your written communications hit the mark every time.
