Today I want to talk about what that means a little bit more and I have 3 suggestions for making that happen. Mostly through my philosophy of embracing ‘intentional serendipity’.
So watch this short video and learn how you can

Yes! Taking action by liking, sharing and commenting on LinkedIn comments.
First, be sure your LinkedIn profile is fully up-to-date with what you offer.
Reach out and ask for the help you need.
If you need help with your resume…ask.
If you need help with your LinkedIn profile…ask.
Keep turning over every rock.
Continuous effort…persistence will allow you to reach your goal!

Thanks for jumping in here Elizabeth. Yeah, when you go out to “turn over rocks” make sure your message is what you want. The “message” you speak, the “message” you have online, all needs to be professional and authentic.
