      This event is the 39th in a series providing candid views of various careers, particularly those with myths, that Yale students and alumni sometimes consider or pursue.

      Sales is particularly rife with myths, especially on campus. Here’s the reality: Sales connects every company, every nonprofit, and every consumer to each other, making business possible. Sales requires complex problem-solving. Done well, sales is fundamentally about helping clients, partners, and consumers achieve their goals, while making a business thrive.

      Our panelists represent three different types of sales: consultative sales, relationship-driven sales, and scaled sales and marketing.

      The panel discussion will be held via streaming video and audio and there will be an opportunity to speak with the panelists and to network for 30 minutes after the panel.

There's no question that LinkedIn is one of the most valuable job search tools available today. But the average job seeker probably uses less than 50% of the potential that LinkedIn can deliver. Your LinkedIn profile can be a tremendous asset to your search if it's Search Engine Optimized (SEO). The LinkedIn platform can help you uncover a lot of hard-to-find companies, if you know how to find them. Having a lot of LinkedIn connections can be extremely useful, if you know how to leverage them. And joining a lot of LinkedIn groups can be powerful if you know how to integrate them into your overall job search marketing effort. In short, it takes a comprehensive LinkedIn job search plan in order to exploit the full power of its capabilities. During this webinar, MARTY GILBERT, NSENG founder and job search coach, will walk you through the LinkedIn platform and provide you with his perspectives on the following topics: Specific goals of an effective LinkedIn profile How Search Engine Optimization (SEO) plays a huge part in attracting recruiters Actions you should take in each section of your profile to make your background stand out How to use LinkedIn criteria-based searches to find more target companies and key influencers Example scripts on how to engage your LinkedIn connections for help Marketing and social media tactics on how to draw more traffic to your LinkedIn profile false
