McNeil Building , Conference Room 97
This program is open to all graduate students and postdocs.
There is never a bad time to think about how far and wide your professional networks extend, and how they can help you achieve some of your career goals. LinkedIn is far more than just a branding platform – it is a research tool, and there are several ways that you can use it effectively in your career exploration. Attend this workshop to learn about 10 LinkedIn best practices you can integrate into your job search straightaway! We will cover a broad range of topics in this workshop, including:
- What information you can actually find on LinkedIn to help you with career exploration and your job search – and how you can refine your research approach to be more successful.
- How to do more than just “have” a profile on LinkedIn.
- How to identify manageable networking goals using LinkedIn.
- Why research on LinkedIn can help to demonstrate interest in employers and career fields.
- What you can do to stay informed and keep your profile active.
- How researching successful professionals in the career fields that interest you can help you to project your own skills and experiences more confidently.
