How can I help your School, College or University
I have been called to assist school, colleges and universities with their LinkedIn strategy and activities.
A very successsful service I offer is
- Liaise with the person managing the LinkedIn presence for the School, College or University and make sure that they have a School Page (not a Company Page)
- Understand how they are using LinkedIn at present for students, staff, marketing, community engagement, information sharing, brand building, alumni and student outcomes (further study or work) and the most immediate priorities. Work directly with a student prior to the presentation to update their LinkedIn Profile as a pro forma for other students
- Providing training for students (recommend the second last year of studies e.g. Year 11 rather than Year 12 in Australia), senior staff and board members, academic staff, career staff, marketing and communication teams, parent and alumni associations. If visiting a school for a full day, start with staff in the morning, students late morning, career/marketing/communication team in the afternoon and a parent and alumni function in the evening (can also incorporate local community members at the evening event)
- Provide further specific information on LinkedIn Strategy and Pro Formas for various school departments
Individual hours of advice
Personal assistance with editing and updating senior staff or principal or vice chancellor LinkedIn Profiles
Full day and evening visit with tailored materials and recording rights
Comprehensive Program including written reports and specific guidelines for moving forward
Additional services related to social media, online presence, careers, business, events and marketing listed here.
Specific projects and special consideration requests most welcome.
Services available online or in person (additional travel costs if outside of Melbourne).
Review website for search engine optimisation and social media as an ‘audit’ with recommendations.
The most popular option is updating a profile for a current student with the careers teacher and conducting a LinkedIn presentation for a Year level (preferably Year 11 for Secondary Schools and First Year for Universities) – I can do this remotely for an unlimited number of students and this includes the rights to record and re-use.
