Al Smith, President, Managing Partner
Transition Sherpa LLC


LinkedIn has changed how you navigate their site. Key features once easy to find are now hidden under new menus. New capabilities have been added. Microsoft’s purchase of LinkedIn will keep the changes coming so don’t get caught behind. Join Al Smith as our keynote speaker to help us put all of this together for us so it works to our advantage.

Just having a LinkedIn profile is not enough. Your profile must be found within the first few pages when recruiters search for someone like you or else you never get a call. Al Smith will teach you step-by-step how to get found including real life “HIRED! Stories”. You will laugh (and groan) while learning invaluable lessons on how to get found, get interviews and get HIRED!

Al is co-author of the Amazon #1 Top Rated Job Search Manual, HIRED! Paths to Employment in the Social Media Era and has been an executive for seven companies in five industries. He has over 35 years of management, sales, marketing, training and coaching experience.

His proprietary “Words-to-WorkTM” keyword discovery methodology is the surest way to make it through the “Black Hole” of online resume submissions or applications while exponentially increasing profile views for the elusive Hidden Job Market. “If you don’t have the right words, in the right quantity, you won’t find work!”

Al’s creative presentations communicate complex material in readily understandable terms. Einstein said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t know it well enough.” If correct, few know how to help candidates secure employment better than Al Smith.

Al is an engaging keynote speaker whose topics are numerous, entertaining and packed with insight.
