Why NOW is a Good Time to Starting Using LinkedIn

Yes, you should have a LinkedIn profile (in addition to your Handshake profile), and you should make use of the site.

Here’s why:

  • Recruiters use the site to site to hire.

  • Employers and networking contacts will look you up.

  • There’s up-to-date information about the state of the economy, the effects of the global pandemic on hiring, and ways that the workplace is changing that are relevant for college students.

  • You can make connections with alumni from your major.

  • There are lots of job postings.

Learn more at our upcoming workshop: Get Connected (LinkedIn and Handshake for Humanities Majors) on Wed, June 3, at 3pm OR Tues, June 16, at 10am. RSVP and get the Zoom link.
