Feedback received from UniSA sessions on 23/09/15

Hi Sue, Thank you very much for your sharing about LinkedIn on Wednesday. This is my first contact on it and I realise it is such a useful platform. It is a good approach to the workplace community and I can’t wait to establish my own profile and connections on it. It is also impressive to know more about how to get a job. Thank you so much again. Have a lovely day.
– Andy Chiu

Hello Sue, Your LinkedIn Masterclass at UniSA on Wednesday was very interesting! It definitely provided some much needed tips and ideas on how to build an online presence and network for career opportunities. I hope to apply some of those techniques on LinkedIn to build a career as a researcher. Thanks!

Dear Sue, Thank you for presentation regarding LinkedIn. Thanks.

Hi Sue, Thank you for the valuable information yesterday. Was easy to digest, reasoned and compelling from a ‘need to network to succeed’ point of view. Thank you again.
– Caroline Chapman

Hi Sue, I attended both sessions you ran at UniSA this week. The sessions were most helpful to provide almost like a bird’s eye view of my career journey and how I should be advertising it to the world. The information has helped me to initiate adjustments to my profile already and I aim to continue to make them over the coming days. Warm regards, Catherine.

I am Chandeni from UniSA who had attended your LinkedIn workshop recently. I found it really useful as it has given me a better understanding about using LinkedIn as a platform for my career.

Hello Sue. It was a pleasure to have attended the Introduction to LinkedIn workshop and the LinkedIn Masterclass that you presented at UniSA today. Thank you for what were informative and very useful workshops. I now have many tips on how to improve my LinkedIn profile which I will gradually work through. The tips for the profile summary were particularly useful as I have been unsure of what to write despite reviewing many articles on the subject. Thank you again for your informative and useful LinkedIn workshops.
– Janette Bridger

Your presentations to the UniSA students were very practical and provided all of us with a range of strategies to heighten our online networking. Thank you, Sue, for your time, experience and enthusiasm.

Hi Sue, Thank you so much for the presentation the other day – we really appreciated you coming over from Melbourne to present, but also the high quality content that was provided. I previously thought that I was fairly competent in my knowledge of LinkedIn, however I found your presentation highly beneficial personally, as I am sure students did too! The link back to employability was particularly good too, and helped to reinforce many of our own key messages to students. Thanks again for your support. We certainly look forward to working with you again in the near future as opportunities arise. We’ll definitely stay in touch!
– Matt Purdy

Dear Sue, Thank you very much for the wonderful LinkedIn masterclass today. I have learnt so much and found the ‘what to/not to include’ in my profile most useful. Thank you once again and hope to speak to you again in the future.
