Kate- When we saw each other last Wednesday, you said you'd send me your new 
e-mail address and as far as I know I still don't have it. I'd like to keep in 
                          Hope you are well and happy,
                                                             Jessa Drury

  Subject: [ats-employment] February 27th Workshop + more

  To all of those who attended the Workshop today (and all of those who could 
  We hope that you enjoyed today's presentation by Brian Basham.  I wish to 
thank you for your active participation.  Someone made the observation that we 
learn from one another. they were so correct.  The questions you posed were 
thoughtful and relevant.  We learn much from YOU.
  As mentioned, we encourage you to use this forum to keep in touch. share your 
successes and ask questions of one another.  
  Today I received a "blog" from one of my colleagues.  She is writing 
specifically for Recruiters.  She should know what she is talking about.. She 
is a Senior Recruiter for Levi Strauss.  She is also my "go-to" person if I 
have a question about LinkedIn.  If you have not joined yet, please do so.  The 
rewards are many.  This particular Recruiter uses LinkedIn to locate candidates 
for positions at Levi's.  I took the liberty of "lifting" one of her items from 
today's Blog.  It may be something you wish to consider to enhance your profile 
(remembering that many Recruiters will do just that.. Check YOU out before they 
approach you with an opportunity.  (See below)  I know I am going to take her 
  Need a Recommendation? 
  If you are a user of LinkedIn, you may know about a section where you ask 
former colleagues or friends to write a recommendation. If you are not familiar 
with this section, a recommendation is the same thing as a reference, only 
shorter and permanent since it's in print and out there for the world to see. 
It's a nice little feature that LinkedIn provides and it gives us Recruiters 
something nice to read while we peruse your profile.  I highly recommend that 
if you have a profile on LinkedIn, ask a few people to write you a 
recommendation.  Especially if that certain someone is a former manager or 
colleague. The idea is to have someone attest to your work, again, it's the 
same thing as a reference. Do not ask someone who does not know you all that 
well.   Another plus?  I and many Recruiters use LinkedIn as our data base from 
which to recruit candidates.  One of the first areas of interest for me is the 
"Recommendations" feature.  It tells me something about how the persons work is 
viewed by others.
