LinkedIn Panel (October 6th, 2020)
On Tuesday, October 6th, BMES held a LinkedIn Panel via Zoom. The event was essentially LinkedIn 101 – how to use it, when to use it, etc. Firstly, Laura Jones from the Career Center gave a short presentation on networking and how to make a good profile, detailing the do’s and don’ts. She showed a short video, explaining how to use LinkedIn to communicate with associates and peers. Following Laura’s presentation, Dr. Gdowski of the BME department explained networking in greater detail, specifically how to use LinkedIn to that end. Gdowski showed a few example LinkedIn accounts (including his own and Laura’s), and discussed the many specificities and nuances that separate a good LinkedIn profile from a great one. The event was great, and I feel as though I have a much better understanding of LinkedIn, and I now know that my profile definitely needs some work.
