Having an effective LinkedIn profile is no longer an option. It is an essential element of your career management.

It’s needed for people who want to be successful in their chosen career as well as for job searchers.

Whether you want to start from fresh or revise something you already have I can help make your profile eye-catching and effective.
Look at your LinkedIn profile – is it as effective as it can be?
Or is it boring, and dull, failing to do you justice.
Recruiters will use LinkedIn to research candidates so it is crucial you have an effective online presence.
Far more than a CV your LinkedIn profile allows you to display more of your personality, recommendations and much more detail on your career history and much more.

Within an hour of following Denise’s clear, comprehensive guide to LinkedIn, I was beginning to use it as a powerful aid to help me get my dream job.

Denise’s guide is simple, easy to understand, and straightforward. It may sound silly, but after reading it and following her suggestions, I felt that I was taking charge of marketing myself and working towards a better future’. Neil B, Oxford
