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 goes beyond the basics of setting up a 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 be 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.
