University of Houston Libraries says
There are over 39 million students and recent college graduates using LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network. Students can find numerous opportunities through LinkedIn, including jobs, internships, graduate schools, and volunteer positions. Additionally, employers are increasingly using web search to learn more about potential job candidates, making it essential for every college student to establish a professional online presence.

The University of Houston Libraries, in partnership with University Career Services, have brought back an event to help students gain a competitive edge using LinkedIn. The first LinkedIn at the Library took place in the fall of 2015, and, due to popular demand, will return on February 13, 2017, providing students with the tools and knowledge to maximize their use of the powerful career and networking platform.

The free event is open to all UH students. Staff from the UH Libraries and Career Services will be on hand to provide friendly critiques of students’ LinkedIn profiles (similar to a résumé critique) and offer best practices for networking on LinkedIn. Representatives from Career Services will conduct a LinkedIn networking presentation, followed by a Q&A. Professional portraits will be offered to students to use in their LinkedIn profiles.

No registration is required to attend. Drop-ins are welcomed.
