LinkedIn is the premier Social Media Job Search tool, but many college students are intimidated by it or don’t know how to use it.
Lynne Sebille-White, Senior Assistant Director of the University of Michigan’s Career Center is certain graduating college students are missing out an important job search tool: “Social media allows you to showcase your skills, experience and unique talents in a very public manner… Social media provides amazing access to others in a way that was not previously available. You can find almost anyone and if you’re smart, you can make a positive impression by how you manage your online presence.”
Brian S. Hall, of ReadWrite, has written an article (Why Aren’t College Students Using LinkedIn?) about this phenomenon and has recommended that Colleges be more proactive in helping students use LinkedIn and other social media to find jobs as they enter the workforce.
But graduating seniors don’t have to rely on their University to help them use LinkedIn. I am happy to offer a deep discount on my LinkedIn Video E-Course to graduating seniors this spring. Just click on Purchase in the navigation bar above and Use Coupon Code: STUDENT and receive the program for $29 (a discount of $20 off the current price).
This is an extremely small investment to make in your future!
In addition, I am happy to be helping College students use LinkedIn in their Job Searches. I currently contribute to the Purdue University Career Center’s Blog and have done presentations on LinkedIn at California State University at Long Beach.
