Veteran Recruiting Network Webinar

I provide my LinkedIn Makeover DIY Kit free to all US Veterans and active duty military. Normally I get maybe 2 or 3 requests a month for the free veteran kit. On January 7th I had about 20 requests before noon! Something was going on and I had no idea what. Turned out Kevin O’Brien from the Veteran Recruiting Network featured me and the free kit on his newsletter that is sent out to over 600K veterans. I immediately called him up to thank him and within 5 minutes we planned a webinar for the next week.

On January 13th I presented to over 200 veterans and taught them how to optimize and leverage LinkedIn for career success. The webinar was scheduled for an hour but ended up going an hour and a half because of all the comments and questions at the end. It was a great group and I am so happy to have been able to volunteer my time and provide them with my veteran gift of the DIY Kit.
