LinkedIn Session #2: Networking Strategies: Students will explore the capabilities of LinkedIn for researching careers and experience how it can support career decision-making and job search, particularly through networking. Discuss common questions such as: “What do I put in a message when reaching out to someone?” or “How do I find alumni to talk with?” or “How can I get someone to respond to my message without bugging them?”

Requirements to attend: Participants must register for a LinkedIn account ahead of time. You do not need to have attended LinkedIn Session #1, but it is a benefit!
