Are you on LinkedIn, but haven’t fully tapped the networking aspect of this impressive social media tool? Join us to learn how to use the broad reach of LinkedIn to effectively network for jobs, internships, or other career related information and leads. Topics will include: ways to reach out to alumnae and other professionals, asking for in-person networking meetings (often called informational interviews), how to join and benefit from participating in groups, and researching/following companies. In this session we will not cover what to include in your profile. This session will be a lecture-style workshop. You are welcome to bring your laptop, however it is not required.
