LinkedIn: How to Build the Perfect Profile

Monday, November 6, 2017 • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: Tillet Hall- Livingston Learning Center- Room 111 PN

We have a new, interactive LinkedIn series! Learn how to represent yourself on LinkedIn by showcasing your unique value and demonstrating the key attributes and qualities desired by all employers.

In this workshop, we'll help you develop your professional brand and create the very first sections someone will see when viewing your LinkedIn profile: your Headline and Summary. Then, we will move onto developing one of the most important parts of your LinkedIn profile: the Experience section. We will also discuss what makes a LinkedIn profile most effective, as well as layout, recommendations/endorsements, and more. By the end, you will know how to fully complete your LinkedIn profile.

ITEMS NEEDED: Please bring your laptop (preferred) or other device to the workshop. Also, please create a free LinkedIn account prior to the workshop (it does not have to be completed).

Registration Information:
This program requires preregistration. To register:

  1. Login to your CareerKnight account
  2. Select "Events, Workshops & Contests" on the left menu bar
  3. Select "Workshops" in the secondary gray bar
  4. You can use the keyword search field to search through the various programs in the system to locate this event
  5. Only students who RSVP for information sessions are guaranteed seats. Others will be allowed into the room five minutes prior to the start time if space is available.


RSVP No-Show Policy:


Participants are considered "no-shows" when they fail to cancel their RSVPs through CareerKnight with sufficient notice (within 24 hours of the program). Failure to attend events for which students have submitted RSVPs will result in a suspension of all CareerKnight privileges, including On-Campus Interviews and job postings. In case of inclement weather, please check www.rutgers.edu to determine the University's operating status. We will follow all closings and delays.

Why we need a no-show/cancellation policy for events: Please note that when participants no-show for events that require an RSVP, it is unfair to potential participants who wanted to attend but couldn't due to a possible waitlist. In addition, for some events (not all) we have employers and organizers who participate and they are giving their time to assist RU students/alumni. Thus, having no-shows for RSVP events not only reflects negatively on you, but on Rutgers University as well. Moreover, such lapses of etiquette are generally not tolerated in business and civic settings.
