Networking

LinkedIn

  • Use it to expand your professional network broadly by connecting with peers, faculty and staff, professional contacts, and alumni. Targeting alumni in specific fields or companies, you can request a chat or an informational interview to learn more about their success and career evolution.
  • Join groups and participate in discussions, opening up communication and interaction with individuals with whom you may not have otherwise had the chance to connect.
  • Present your professional portfolio and let employers know you are interested in specific opportunities.
  • Use your LinkedIn network to request an introduction to an appropriate connection at your ideal company or organization.
