LinkedIn Profile

What is LinkedIn?
It is the world’s largest professional network online. It’s a great way to develop your professional brand, network with other professionals, join professional groups, or follow other professionals. Your LinkedIn profile is like an expanded resume – instead of being tailored to a specific opportunity, it is a portfolio of your experiences, skills, and work to showcase your value and contribution to your field. A LinkedIn account allows you to:

  • Develop your professional profile/brand that highlights your qualifications and accomplishments
  • Network with professionals, alumni, and students
  • Search for and apply to job/internship opportunities and be recognized by recruiters
  • Provide and receive recommendations to better market yourself
  • Stay-up-to-date on various topics by joining interest groups and following companies/agencies of interest
