Micro Office Huddle – 23.11.21
We created Micro Office Huddle to be a hub where the technology-enthused, with a desire to learn, can come together and collaborate. In the weekly Huddles, members meet and discuss new topics, ask questions, and make connections. This week, Ghislaine van Berkom-Smits led the Technology Spotlight. We then learnt more about how to create a LinkedIn profile that will set you apart from the crowd.
Every Huddle, one volunteer leads what we call the ‘Technology Spotlight’. This week, Ghislaine explained the things we can all do that will help boost our LinkedIn profiles. More than just ensuring your profile picture is professional and smiley, it’s good to take advantage of how LinkedIn allows you to display a header picture. This can be a great way for you to tell your audience a bit more about what you do with an eye-catching visual! Ghislaine also pointed out some of the lesser-known customisations that can be made, such as changing our profile URL to something more identifiable or adding in a button with the correct pronunciations of our names.
The 404 Roundup is the time where anyone in the Huddle can ask a question about an area of technology they’ve been struggling with or just share some information about something they’ve recently discovered. This week, we didn’t have any problems but did discuss some tips that can be used in Microsoft Excel!
