As part of our Online Informative Sessions series, we try to bring topics meant to inform and empower our community and promote networking. This session will be focused on using and improving your LinkedIn profile.

All LS4FUTURE members are welcome, from PhD students to PIs, including research technicians and managers.

LinkedIn is a professional networking platform that can be used to increase your online visibility. A professional online presence is important, as 64% of employers check future employees’ LinkedIn profiles during the recruitment process.

During this online informative session, we will:

  • discuss the sections of a LinkedIn profile, top tips on creating an effective profile, and what makes LinkedIn a great platform to showcase your career goals and achievements.
  • Talk about hints and tips on how to network with LinkedIn users, potential employers and future colleagues and how to take advantage of job adverts that you can find on LinkedIn.
