Friday May 6th – 2pm pdt / 5pm edt
Bring all your questions, and resistance (if you’ve got some) – we’ll think about what it might mean to approach the platform as researchers.
What if we thought about LinkedIn as a database of the world’s largest repository of information about work? How might we click into research mode to tackle that? What questions might we bring? As descriptivists, we’re not looking for the “right way” to use the resource – we want to think generatively, expansively, creatively, adopting a growth and abundance mindset.
This will be much more of a discussion and idea-sharing than a lecture – we’ll have two special guests Amy Santee and Sonia Checchia sharing some of their brilliant ideas and strategies. Finally, for anyone looking for more career support, I’ll share a bit of info about my two upcoming programs in May:
