A LinkedIn executive will speak next week to marketing professionals in Lincoln about how to use the professional networking site to advance their careers.

Holly Procter, a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s MBA program, will discuss, “Your Career Path Redefined — LinkedIn Changes the Game” at a luncheon from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14 at the Embassy Suites at 1040 P St.

Procter, a LinkedIn “enterprise relationship manager,” will discuss how LinkedIn works, how to use it for career advancement, how recruiters worldwide use the site and how to get their attention.

Procter, who began her career in business development at Gallup in San Francisco, later worked as a consultant before joining LinkedIn. She now is charged with creating relationships with clients in the Bay Area, southern California, Seattle and Portland to help business customers use LinkedIn to hire.

The event, presented by the American Marketing Association Lincoln chapter, costs $22 for AMA members and $37 for non-members. Student rates are $18 with lunch, $6 without lunch. Register on AMA Lincoln’s website.
