5 Steps for Using LinkedIN​

If you are planning to conduct a job search at some point upon graduation or before, you need a LinkedIn profile and information on how to use it most effectively to meet your goals. Here are 5 vital steps to make it work for you.

1. Have a professional headshot and cover photo
2. Identify a profession for yourself, even if you don't currently have one (e.g., Public Relations and Social Media Marketing) 

3. Fill Out Your Profile Completely. Craft your bio carefully, emphasizing hard skills. Link to your resume and/or online portfolio
4. Ask your professors, internship supervisors, and employers to endorse you on LinkedIn.

5. Post articles about trends in your field, so show you care about keeping up with your industry.


Beyond these basic tips, if you have excellent professional blogging skills, post blogs that demonstrate your knowledge of your field. Take a positive tone and references to outside articles. Topics may include new trends in your field, how-to posts, opinion posts on a case study, etc.
