A strong resumé used to be your best weapon for getting a good job. These days, you need more arrows in your quiver - and people in your network. LinkedIn, a free Internet service, allows you to build a set of professional contacts. These contacts, in turn, lead to other contacts that can sometimes produce job leads.
If you want to learn how to set up a LinkedIn page or ramp up the page you already have, a free seminar will help. The LinkedIn workshop at the Suffolk Y JCC in Commack will cover the basics of networking and job search, and teach you how to get and give recommendations, an important part of the LinkedIn process.
The workshop is Tuesday, 10:30 a.m.-noon. Reservations are required. Call 631-486-2521 or e-mail
