How to Leverage LinkedIn for Your Life after Luther

We want you to put your best face forward online by successfully using LinkedIn, a professional social networking platform.   More and more employers are searching out employees using LinkedIn and some Luther undergraduates have received interviews due to having a strong LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn is also a way to connect with Luther College alumni and it's important to present yourself professionally. 

This workshop will go beyond the basics of setting up your profile, offering tips and tricks to creating effective headlines and summaries that will get you noticed.  We will also review best practices for connecting with others on LinkedIn, establishing a reputation in your field, and growing a smart network. 

Jennifer Rian, Luther College's Innovative Services Librarian and Brenda Ranum, Interim Director of the Career Center will conducting this workshop.    

Note: 

Please bring a laptop or tablet to this workshop along with basic resume information, including a professional picture of yourself (in digital format) so that you can follow along with the various exercises.
