Put Wednesday 1st March in your diaries, as we will be hosting our interactive LinkedIn Day event throughout Commons, Newton Park.
With various workshops, industry speakers, opportunities to have you photo taken and competitions to get involved in, it’s an opportunity you shouldn’t miss!
What is LinkedIn?
Linkedin is similar to, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, in that it is an online social network. However, whilst professionals may have accounts on the likes of Facebook, LinkedIn is strictly for professional use. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an undergrad student or a major CEO, LinkedIn is accessible by anyone who wants to build career contacts.
Why is it important?
LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network and has millions of members, which continue to grow rapidly. Many companies big and small use the power of the internet to search for potential employees. It’s essential, now more than ever, to keep your online accounts professional, because the world can view them. LinkedIn helps to provide a professional page where you can showcase both skills and talent to the people who matter.
