Using LinkedIn & Professional Networking (Advanced)
From Jeff Layne
CSU, Chico Career Center
The advanced version of LinkedIn can be a powerful tool for students in their search for employment. Ken Naas of the CSU, Chico Career Center leads his audience through the various sections of LinkedIn, the professional networking site that now has 318 million members. He shows students how to go beyond listing their current position so that they are specific about where they want to go professionally. Videos, photographs, and PowerPoint presentations can now be added to LinkedIn profiles. Naas also advises students to list community involvement, as it can indicate to recruiters that they are well-rounded and have good character.
