LinkedIn can no longer be considered as just a dispensable social networking site. With 50 million worldwide members and 89% of recruiters having hired someone via LinkedIn, it is increasingly becoming an indispensable tool. Watch the video below on employers explaining the value of LinkedIn for University of Hertfordshire students.

Watch out for the activities we have running this week that will help improve your LinkedIn profile:

LinkedIn Photography Day

A good quality photograph can make all the difference to the viewings and connections you gain on LinkedIn. We are bringing professional photographers onto both our campuses to give our students the opportunity to get a professional photograph taken for their LinkedIn profile. This will run on Wednesday 11 November 2015 between 9am – 5pm on both our campuses (de Havilland – M018 & College Lane – LB416).
