Leveraging your Social Network

Do you have questions about how to incorporate social networking into your job search?  Have you received conflicting advice about whether to create a LinkedIn account and whether to delete your Facebook profile?  Then mark your calendar for Tuesday, October 16th at Noon in room 455 to listen to Amanda Ellis, author of The 6Ps of the BIG 3™ for Job-Seeking JDs (2010), answer all of your questions about incorporating social networking into your job search! 

The 6Ps of the BIG 3™ for Job-Seeking JDs teaches lawyers and law students how to get hired through relationships they develop and cultivate on the three most popular social networking sites–Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter (collectively, the “Big 3”). Many job seekers maintain a presence on the Big 3 sites. But, a mere presence is not sufficient to get hired—it’s only one element.  The 6Ps of the BIG 3™ for Job-Seeking JDs teaches law students and lawyers how to incorporate the 6Ps (Professionalism, Profile, Privacy, Performance, Practice, Protocol) and outlines over 60 ways to use the Big 3 sites to get hired.

Amanda Ellis is the Vice President of Search for Special Counsel.  Prior to her current role, Ms. Ellis worked as an Attorney Search Director at Special Counsel and her own search firm where she placed attorneys in law firms and corporate legal departments.  Amanda Ellis Legal Search also publishes Something Different, a monthly e-newsletter that outlines a new or different service or resource available to legal professionals in each issue.  Prior to entering the legal recruiting field, Amanda practiced commercial bankruptcy law in Massachusetts and Texas. Amanda is a graduate of The University of Texas School of Law and Centenary College of Louisiana.
