It is easy enough to set up a LinkedIn account, but can feel much more daunting to actually use LinkedIn to grow your network in a way that helps your own career development. If you are nervous about networking, cautious about connecting, and generally confused about what concrete next steps to take with your outreach using LinkedIn, then join this online webinar. We will talk about getting started with your personal branding, leveraging alumni and other professional networks, and being active on LinkedIn to increase your visibility and potential value to others.
