Workshop LinkedIn

Are you a(n) (international) student looking for job opportunities or an internship? LinkedIn is an effective social media tool, enhancing your career opportunities in different ways.

LinkedIn helps you to find interesting people, jobs and other opportunities that you wouldn’t get in contact with any other way. It can help you in familiarizing yourself with a vacancy or potential employer; you increase your chances on the labor market. On the other hand, LinkedIn helps you being found.

How can you make a suitable personal profile for yourself? How do you show your specialties and competencies on LinkedIn?
