Top Line Issues:  Linkedin, Branding, Job search management

A.  Linkedin:  Kat Moon
-Summaries, Headline, and photo need to be strong and professional
   graduate assistant is not good
   goofy photo is a turn-off
   past history bio will not convince recruiters to contact you
-Content that describes your skills needs to be relevant for new situations
   course history is like a book you have read and half forgotten
   proper use of verb tense, past and present for current experience, stands
out to recruiters
   descriptive action verbs for accomplishments, relevant skill
endorsements
need to be prioritized

B.  What few words can you use to describe your most relevant skills,
applicable knowledge and abilities/contact network?  Your Brand.
-Practice how you display and perform it.
-Be aware of unique features of your being-  voice, smile, etc
-Show that you care and care about yourself and others.

C.  Career Management is full of unanticipated opportunities, luck
and sometimes what you plan.
-Develop pertinent new skills
-Express your appreciation of others
