Have you already made a LinkedIn account but is your profile still not set up properly? Are you unsure what exactly LinkedIn can be used for at all? In this LinkedIn Basics workshop, you will learn how to build a strong profile and how to expand your network. Already doing so during your studies will work in your advantage when looking for a job, since we all know, nowadays: a strong online presence is essential.
In this workshop you will learn what a strong profile looks like, you will get to work on your own profile, and receive feedback on your profile. After this workshop, you will know how to further improve your profile as well as how to connect with people.
Bring your (charged) laptop with you so you can get started right away.
After this workshop, or if your profile is all done already, you can sign up for the Advanced LinkedIn workshop. In this workshop you will learn how to use LinkedIn when trying to find a job.
Who is it for
3rd-year and 4th-year Bachelor's and Master's degree students, recent UU graduates and PhDs from all Graduate Schools
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.
