Google yourself. What comes up? If an employer did this (which is quite possible), would they want to hire you? This workshop will look at how to develop a positive online presence (and how to avoid making a negative one!) and use LinkedIn to showcase your professional skills and experience.
In this session we will look at some examples of how other people manage their online identity and the positive and negative impacts on potential and current employers. We will discuss how and why to use LinkedIn as a platform to showcase your professional skills and experience to employers and demonstrate some of the features of the website which are particularly useful for students.
By the end of the session you will be able to:
- Recognise the importance of actively managing your online identity
- Identify how to build and manage your online presence
- Recognise how to utilise LinkedIn effectively for career development
