LinkedIn Connects & Must-Attend Events
City Never Sleeps by Emily Goldblum
Link on LinkedIn
Sometimes students are overwhelmed by social media without even realizing it. Not only is it important to stay on top of all the new social media platforms that are coming out but its important to constantly update the ones you already have. If you don’t have a LinkedIn, you’re only hurting yourself. With over 100 million professionals and countless headhunters connecting with other professionals, don’t ever doubt that they might message you. There are hundreds of stories out there regarding LinkedIn. Some people weren’t even actively job searching yet they’ve been contacted for interviews that benefit them greatly. Just think of this as an online resume for all to see. It’s worth the extra app in your phone.
