Optimising your use of LinkedIn for job search (Chiltern Branch HR Job Seekers Group)

About this event

Hosted by: Tara Hopkins, Branch Committee Member

Guest Speaker: Sarah Burgess, Career Coach and LinkedIn Specialist

Sarah has been a career coach for 18 years, prior to that she worked within L&D in financial services.

She works with a very wide range of clients and her focus is helping people move forward with their career.

In this session, Sarah will be spending time talking and demonstrating some of the features of LinkedIn which will help you market yourself whilst job hunting.

Sarah spends significant amounts of time on LinkedIn as she regularly works with clients to help them utilise it in an effective way which suits them.

In terms of qualifications, Sarah has her FCIPD, a Post Graduate Diploma in L&D, is qualified in a wide range of psychometrics, Prince 2 qualified, a life coach, and is just awaiting results of her career counselling accreditation (she decided after 18 years of doing this work to formalise it with a qualification!).

Please feel free to connect with Sarah on LinkedIn in advance of the session, and if you have any specific questions you’d like her to include in the session, please let her know.


The Chiltern Branch Jobseekers' Group is open to anyone living within the Chiltern Branch area who's currently seeking a role in HR. For now we'll meet on Zoom, but hopefully soon we'll be able to get together in person . There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, brainstorm and network wit other Jobseeker SIG members during the session.

Join our LinkedIn group to share ideas and questions, and to network with others:

We're hoping we can have speakers at future events – perhaps covering:

– Defining your career goals

– CVs and covering letters

– LinkedIn profiles

– Researching companies

– Interview skills

– Job search resilience

– Portfolio careers

What other ideas do people have?

Places can be booked from 11th June. A zoom meeting link will be sent to you on the evening of 30th June.
