Workshop on LinkedIn

With more than 90% of recruiters filling positions using LinkedIn, a professional networking site, it is clear that a powerful, polished profile can pay dividends to those willing to invest a little of their time on their profiles. LinkedIn not only gives one an opportunity to build his/her professional connections and learn about job opportunities, it also allows one to showcase his/her skills to potential recruiters. Ms Ho Wing Yee from the Centre for Future- Ready Graduates was engaged by the ECE Department to conduct a hands-on workshop on LinkedIn on 12 May 2015 at the Engineering Active Learning Room. After an intense and interesting session, students participating in the workshop were able to connect and communicate with others on LinkedIn, as well as explore the different job and internship opportunities advertised there. All in all, it was a fulfilling and rewarding learning experience for them.
