“I did change the name of the club to "The Eugene Nonfiction Book Club." Membership's growing steadily, so I'm confident that this is becoming a sustainable book club. The first meeting is this Wednesday.  The Switchboard was very helpful in getting the word out. Thank you!”

“We received some great candidates for this position.”

“IT WAS AN ACCIDENT. How I reached a level of LinkedIn mastery where someone now even refers me to her network as 'The LinkedIn Guru.' Over 5 years ago, I was spending tireless hours learning to use LinkedIn to network for jobs when I was in graduate school. I'm a firm believer that the more we teach things to others, the more we learn. We not only feel great, but we help others achieve a similar goal we want for ourselves.  So I decided to apply my innate abilities of teaching and educating; helping people brand themselves on LinkedIn and optimize their own profile to help them network and find a new job.  During that time, I was very fortunate through my own research and networking to collaborate and learn from the top LinkedIn 'Influencers,' ambassadors, and staff (such as J.T. O'Donnell, Alyssa Sittig, and Dr. Marla Gottschalk) on how to optimize LinkedIn for networking and career development. I learned more about how the site worked and what the best "tricks and tips" were. Through consistent learning and service to others, I became seen by people as a "LinkedIn expert." In 2016, I was selected by LinkedIn as an industry expert on their Pro Finder feature. I've been featured on sites such as Recruiter.com, WorkitDaily, and KTLA Channel 5 morning news as a Career and LinkedIn Branding expert. To date, I have been able to help out thousands of people optimize their professional brand and profile on LinkedIn to help them grow their network, find a better job, and grow their business. I work primarily with: A) Ambitious women who already have a successful business and want to learn how to specifically use LinkedIn to expand their business. Also independent contractors (male or female) (Real estate agents, Career Coaches, Speakers, Consultants) B) High level or "C" level business professionals looking to make a transition into a different career or industry. ”

“I'd made some good progress on this project, yet felt it would take a while to complete working by myself. I mentioned this to Mark and as if by magic a couple volunteers appeared to help me. Thank you, Mark. We had a brief meeting then immediately setup a Trello board to facilitate coordination and track the project's progress. Some new ideas came up in the discussion. I'm grateful that this community Switchboard exists. It does work! ”

“got two responses.  hired one and waiting to see if they can deliver.”

“The Eugene Switchboard is a great. In this case, the main benefit of this post is that I focused my thoughts more and made some progress on how to frame things. I think writing helps for that. It's also sparked a couple conversations that resulted in some useful feedback. As a result of the sort of thinking I did here, I was able to improve my profile on a job board resulting in an interview with a company I would consider a good place to work. ”
