I’m going to take a huge leap here and assume you have probably heard of LinkedIn. You likely know that it has something to do with careers, and you are generally encouraged to use it.
But, what exactly can it do? How do you get involved? How would you go about making a profile and what sorts of things should you display on it? What is considered an appropriate profile picture? What about the network – do you know the first thing about contacting mentors, potential employers, or “connections” you may already have?
Well, luckily there happens to be a LinkedIn Workshop this Wednesday, March 6th, 12:15 – 1:15. Stop by Bihall 219 to have all your LinkedIn questions answered once and for all! It really is a valuable resource and an increasing number of career advisers out there are strongly recommending it. As college students it is even more important to get started – like right now. Some professionals are even saying we should have started in high school! eep! So, rebound from your procrastination kick for a minute and check it out. If nothing else, you’ll finally know what people are talking about when they mention that “LinkedIn” thing.
