LinkedIn is fast becoming the best way for professionals to network and connect with peers and clients online. But learning how to use the platform can be tricky, and navigating two different languages and cultures adds to the complication.

To help translators and interpreters take their first steps with LinkedIn, JAT in collaboration with JACI (Japan Association of Conference Interpreters) will be hosting a webinar with two LinkedIn professionals: Yumi Ishide, Partner Coach at EarthMedia, and Yukiko Fujimura, a bilingual voice over artist who has found success from leveraging LinkedIn.

In this webinar, learn the basics of using LinkedIn for business, and learn from real-life examples how to apply it to your business.

The first half will cover effective LinkedIn strategies, from tips on creating your Profile to posting do's and don'ts. We’ll also hear from guest speaker Yukiko Fujimura who will share case studies of their experience with the platform as a bilingual professional.

The second half will delve into practical techniques, and explain how to build relationships that lead to business opportunities, including effective direct messaging examples.

This session is tailored for professionals aiming to use social media more effectively for business, regardless of followers you have, especially if you've yet to see tangible results.

Don’t miss this opportunity to master the power of LinkedIn and connect with individuals who value your expertise.
