I am a Board Member with the New York University, SCPS Real Estate Alumni Group and I would like to offer a recommendation for Jasime Sandler as a LinkedIn Sales Trainer. As a Board Memeber we face the constant mounting challenge of staying connected with alumni and not losing track of new graduates with nearly everything we do. Linkedin is an incredible tool if used effectively. We were finding that many graduates were not actively using their accounts or were ONLY using them when they were interested in making a career change. We first contacted Jasmine to give us some advice on better ways that we as an organization could be using Linkedin. Jasmine is a dynamic, friendly person who is able to take some of the more specialized degree groups within our alumni network (like Construction Management, Asset Development, and Engineering) and offer strategies for how to use Linkedin for Career Development, New Business, and more importantly developing our Alumni Network. Ultimately we asked Jasmine to host one of our bi-annual events and she came and spoke to our New York Alumni Group. As a LinkedIn Sales Trainer Jasmine was amazing; we couldn’t have hoped for better results. The talk was interesting and generated alot of discussion and interest from our group. The end result was a great event, increased Alumni activity through Linkedin, and we are planning to do a follow up event next year. Thank you Jasmine!
