Use the YPT LinkedIn Group if you are #OpenToWork!
We want to point those on the job hunt to our group, and those having job opportunities, to share to our LinkedIn group. The group is a great way to share some information about yourself as a job seeker or post opportunities.
If you’re job seeking, we suggest using the popular hashtag #OpenToWork and sharing the following:
- What’s your professional background?
- What are your hard skills?
- What are your soft skills?
- What kinds of positions are you interested in?
- What geographic areas are you looking in?
- Something fun!
And don’t forget to attach your resume and any other files that show off your skills to the post!
