Over 40 million students and recent college graduates are using LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network. Jobs, internships, graduate school information, and volunteer positions can be found on the networking platform, and employers actively seek potential job candidates in this space. It’s essential for every college student to maintain a professional online presence.
The University of Houston Libraries is once again partnering with University Career Services to bring LinkedIn at the Library back for the spring 2018 semester. This popular event will provide students with the tools and knowledge to maximize their use of LinkedIn.
LinkedIn at the Library is free and open to all UH students. Staff from the Libraries and Career Services will provide friendly critiques of students’ LinkedIn profiles (similar to a résumé critique) and offer best practices for networking on LinkedIn. Professional portraits will be offered to students to use in their LinkedIn profiles.
Registration is not required. Drop-ins are welcome.
