As a result, I’ve started doing training workshops for students (and also other careers advisers!) on how you can use LinkedIn for careers networking/job hunting.

I’ll be saying more about LinkedIn over the next few months, but to get you started, here are 3 quick(ish) steps for using LinkedIn effectively as a student: Read the rest of this entry »
