You can’t start soon enough with building up your network. Therefore, it is wise to have a good LinkedIn profile when you are still in college. You can use LinkedIn to build up a strong network which will help you in finding the right job.
When you apply for jobs, promoting yourself online is essential. Potential employers will definitely be Googling you. Of course, you want to look professional when they do. In this workshop you will learn how to do this. You'll learn what a good LinkedIn profile looks like, how to use LinkedIn to map out your job market. We will discuss how you can build up your network, how to use groups and company pages. Furthermore we will take a look into the job page of LinkedIn.
In order to take part in this workshop, you must have already created a LinkedIn profile. Bring your (charged) laptop with you so you can get started right away.

Our no-show policy
We are happy to offer workshops for free to all Utrecht University students. However: free of charge does not mean free of responsibility. Our activities tend to be fully booked well in advance. For every late cancellation or no-show we have had to disappoint students who would have liked to attend. This is how we work:
- Once you have signed up for a workshop, we expect you to attend;
- If you need to cancel your registration, do so at the earliest possible moment, at least 24 hours before the workshop;
- Not showing up without notice will mean you cannot participate in any Career Services activity for 8 weeks. Two no-shows mean you cannot participate for the remainder of the academic year.
If you are unable to attend, please deregister in a timely manner.
