In the second part of the event Maria Pafioli introduced us to the world of LinkedIn and guided us to the possibilities it offers us, as well as its evolution globally and in Greece the last two years. After this, she introduced the 3 stages separating us from all the other LinkedIn users (degree of separation), in contrary with other social media and there was a presentation of the advantages and disadvantages that the premium accounts offer.

Additionally she  referred to the right approach to the professional communities that interest us, the correct way of promoting our professional profile and the mistakes we should avoid. She shared with us many practical advice and tips ‘n’ tricks that help us create and evolve our professional appearance in LinkedIn like for example the use of SEO and the free learning webinars.

As a closure, Maria Pafioli, referred to the  possibilities LinkedIn is giving to Non-for-Profit organizations for their networking and their voluntary action and urged us to use it in a very practical way by giving us as the only way to contact her, the name of her LinkedIn profile.
