8 March One More Reason to Attend NerdNation 2016 March 8, 2016By Erin Cogswell General blog, Competitive Edge, NerdNation 0 Tweet Competitive Edge members — we have one more great reason for you to attend NerdNation 2016: a special event on building your personal brand led by LinkedIn mastermind and career coach Ron Nash. Nash will lead an exclusive educational forum entitled “How to LinkedIn and Get Yourself Noticed” on Saturday, April 9, from 8:30-9:30 a.m. The event is sponsored by Pearson Higher Education Group. Ninety-seven percent of human resources professionals and hiring managers use LinkedIn to recruit new talent; and if you’re not on the social networking site, you’re nearly invisible to them, Nash says. In this forum, he’ll show you how the site can get you noticed. Nash has worked as a human resources business partner for more than 20 years providing talent acquisition and strategies to help organizations attract top talent. He has worked with Fortune 50 to 500 companies, including Microsoft, Belkin Wireless, Samsung, Cardinal Health and LinkedIn. “We are thrilled to have Ron Nash joining us for this special opportunity for our Competitive Edge members,” said Jennifer Stanford, Phi Theta Kappa’s Chief Student Engagement Officer. “His presentation will be a great complement to the soft skills and personal and professional development Competitive Edge members have gained through their participation in the program.” This event is only open to Competitive Edge members at any level, whether you’ve reached the Five Star Level or only just begun. For admission, you must have a Competitive Edge ribbon attached to your NerdNation name badge. Ribbons may be claimed at the Foundation Booth. Nash will sign copies of his latest book, LinkedIn: The Power of Your Profile, at the Pearson Booth in the Marketplace from 10-11 a.m., immediately following his Competitive Edge presentation. The book signing is open to all NerdNation attendees, and books may be purchased in the NerdNation Marketplace. Learn more about this exclusive event, and get started in Competitive Edge today!
