Just gave a presentation last night to my Invest in Girls group about why it’s so important for young women to develop a LinkedIn professional profile and get comfortable with networking and promoting themselves.
Invest in Girls is an educational organization that mentors young women as they learn more about personal finance and potential careers in finance.
Can you believe there are now over 1 billion people on LinkedIn? That’s why it is such an important networking tool.
Women are sometimes hesitant to promote themselves and speak confidently about their skills and experience. One of my key messages? Don’t be shy about tooting your own horn. But do learn how to do it in a way that demonstrates confidence, leadership and authenticity.
