Using LinkedIn to help with the Job Search
Part of the Expanding Horizons Workshop series
Date: Thursday, March 5
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:30 m
Host: Julia Blackstock, Career Services
Venue: Gordon Hall, room 325A (Career Services workshop room)
Social Media is a reality for people building a career in the current world. You do, however, have choices. Make social media resources of the day (will it still be Linkedin?) work for your goals and needs. We will explore the capabilities of tools such as Linkedin.com (advanced people search, groups, alumni and new grad subsites). With all the drama (and uncertainty) of a live experiment, we will attempt to answer questions such as “Where have all the graduates gone?” and “Who else cares about thin film crystallography the way I do?” Integrate the newest tool or resource on the horizon with time-honored career strategies that put you in the driver’s seat (and at the same time observing the rules of the road).
Come with an idea of the type of work or industry you are interested in exploring. If you need help with career direction consider making a career counselling appointment prior to the workshop.
