BHISD Technology LinkedIn Lunch and Learn

BHISD Technology recently had the honor of hosting a LinkedIn Lunch & Learn featuring Jake Russell. Jake is a 2011 Baylor graduate and is employed by Magnolia Realty as featured on HGTV "Fixer Upper". Jake has built a network of thousands of direct connections and a global network of over 20 million connections using LinkedIn.

The focus of this session was to demonstrate how LinkedIn can directly increase the effectiveness and bottom line of community businesses. Jake recently published an article, How to List 2.9 Million in 3 Months. It is a great read!

The event was attended by over 30 participants that had many intriguing questions during and after the presentation. Jake was able to apply the benefits of LinkedIn to everyday situations.

This was another great opportunity to strengthen the bond between our schools and local businesses.
