This week's Bricks & Mortar sees series host Sarah Jackman return to the virtual studio for the second instalment in the careers trilogy with Nick Carman, Partnership Director at Macdonald & Company, a specialist recruitment consultancy for the real estate and built environment sectors.

Carman has tips on how to make your LinkedIn page look impactful, the importance of buzz words and phrases and why utilising the follow button effectively can provide useful introductions to industry people and organisations.
He also introduces listeners to the video CV - a medium which has increased significantly since the onset of the pandemic and looks set to stay as both candidates and employers reap the benefits. He gives practical advice on how to present yourself on screen and how video might be incorporated as part of a LinkedIn profile.
