OUR CAREER AND ACADEMIC SUCCESS SERIES (THIS SESSION WILL BE ON ZOOM) To attend this session, a student should have either attended LinkedIn Level 1 or have had their profile reviewed, by appointment, by a career coach. It is critical to first have a well-constructed profile before trying to connect with alumni and those with hiring influence. In this popular session, we will talk about ways to use your profile and cover things like who to search for, how to search, how to add connections and what to say, and how to follow up once someone has added you. We will teach special tools and functions like searching alumni by major, searching by area of the country, searching for interns to find out how they got their internship at a company you want to intern for. We will talk about “breadcrumbing” people and what sorts of job titles you want to search for in order to parse those with hiring influence.
