 Power Up Your Networking… LinkedIn and BEYOND

With the meetings / hospitality industry virtually at a standstill, and many MPI members losing their jobs, a lot of us are wondering what’s next, let alone how to pay our bills. Dawn Rasmussen, long-time MPI member and professional resume writer, will lead this session on the power of LinkedIn for building up your networking efforts. She will provide meaty insights on how to update your profile and how to use LinkedIn to make connections, as well as alternative job directions for industry people at a loss of where to start. This is one session you won’t want to miss!

Learning objectives:
1.     How to create a powerful LinkedIn profile
2.     How to use LinkedIn to network and other outreach methods
3.     Alternative career paths for meetings industry professionals to follow up until the economy recovers

Dawn Rasmussen, a certified résumé writer, is the president of Portland, Ore.-based Pathfinder Writing and Career Services and author of “Forget Job Security: Build Your Marketability” which is the first-ever book that provides a complete roadmap on how manage your career. Instead of continuing this speaker introduction with a long, boring list of career accolades or high-profile media outlets where she has been featured, I am going to share with you the one thing that makes Dawn “tick”: a relentless and tireless desire to help everyone understand the importance of actively managing their career every minute of every day. So if Dawn makes you uncomfortable during today’s presentation, that’s great! That tells her that she has pushed your envelope (in a good way) and helped make you think, and means that this is the first step in the journey where you to begin to actively manage your career destiny. When she isn’t busy working with résumé clients, speaking to conference groups internationally and nationally, writing articles / blogs, or teaching, Dawn is hiking in Oregon’s spectacular outdoors, kayaking, or plotting her next adventure. And you should know that her most recent adventure, during the COVID-19 pandemic, has been acting as a stand-in mama raising an abandoned fawn, Thor, who was found on her property. Yet another thing to put on Dawn’s own resume: Deer Mama!
