Four years ago the economy left thousands of people without jobs, so I organized Project Link It Forward to help the struggling unemployed learn how to use LinkedIn to connect and network themselves towards new positions. I myself was an early adopter of the social networking site for professionals and realized that most people didn’t really understand how it could be helpful, thus came the idea for Project Link It Forward. I set up a free class that people could take to learn the ins and outs of LinkedIn and how they could utilize it in their job search. Within a week the class had filled up completely! I really feel for the unemployed and Project Link It Forward was a great way for me to give back, although I had no idea what a success it would be. Today the economy is improved, but still weak, and many are still searching for a way to bring in an income for their family. LinkedIn continues to be a great tool for those on the hunt for a good job, but they’re going to need a working computer to do that! So… Call That Girl is offering 50% off on in-store services until the end of the year to those of you (or those that you know) who are unemployed. All that we ask is that you bring along some sort of proof. That can even be just showing us on your LinkedIn profile that you are in transition.
Come on in so you can get back to the job search!
Please share with your friends on other social networking sites! Our offer is open to all of the unemployed!
