Describe your prospecting strategy for linking to people. What was the best action you took to ensure success? What were your overall take-away lessons from this exercise? How might you use LinkedIn to secure employment after graduation?
Create milestones within the project and ask students to complete those in a timely manner Avoid allowing the use of professors to complete the professional connections assignment Walk students through the development of a good profile – what experience to include/leave out, how to frame expertise, how to maximize educational experiences, etc. Groups are collections of people with similar interests, goals, or job responsibilities that wish to pose questions, share information, or network with others of similar interests. Encourage students to focus on groups that are related to their professional development, rather than their personal interests. Explain the need for a qualitative post within the groups – starting a thread, rather than just replying to someone else’s thread Show students your own LinkedIn profile, including examples of what a 5-8 sentence recommendation might contain Help students understand what sort of documentation you will require – screenshots, print outs, PDFs, etc
