There is a lot of guidance on the internet and in publications, on how to do things step-by-step on social media and particularly LinkedIn. However, we explored how we can use it in seeking a first career or finding research opportunities. We also discussed the value of reflecting on our own personalities, and choosing which aspects of them are of interest to other users of the LinkedIn site.
There is no doubt that asking ‘why?’ before ‘how?’ is better than simply diving in just because everyone else is. As a result, everyone will benefit from reflection and researching which aspects of an individual’s personality will be best received.
Although we talked around the slides as well, the presentation slides (pdf format) are here for those who want them for review.
