LINKEDIN Profile and Job Search TIPS for 2022 | E.90 Career Therapy Podcast, with Jeremy Schifeling

On this week's Career Therapy Podcast (e.90), we welcome Jeremy Schifeling to the podcast.

Jeremy is the Principal Product Marketing Manager at Khan Academy, the VP of Marketing at Break Into Tech, and previously worked as a Senior Product Marketing Manager at LinkedIn itself - so he knows all the hidden platform secrets. Our paths first crossed at Udacity and I’ve been a big fan of his work over the years helping people start their careers in tech.

Today, we dig into the nitty gritty of the LinkedIn platform, getting into the mind of the recruiter, optimizing profiles for keywords, and pairing the right tools with the right mindsets to overcome imposter syndrome, network effectively, and get the jobs that everyone is fighting for.

Thank you for tuning into this episode and supporting our show. Please enjoy our conversation with Jeremy Schifeling…
