LinkedIn for Students
Transcript of LinkedIn for Students
37% of surveyed job recruiters identified social professional networks as one of the most important sources for hiring.
Social professional networks are also the fastest growing source of quality hires.
90 of the Fortune 100 companies use LinkedIn's corporate talent solutions to find future hires.
"Employers are looking for recent graduates," says Nicole Williams, LinkedIn's Career Expert
“If you are active on LinkedIn as a college student, you may be identified as a potential candidate, passively," she says.
Being identified "passively" means job recruiters could find your profile and consider you for a position, without you even having to apply.”
In addition to LinkedIn – students should also have a basic profile set up in YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
Your profile should include…
First and Last Name
