This is your chance to participate in our LinkedIn Skills Academy, a four-session series that gets you ready to network professionally online. Space is limited, so don’t wait.

Alexander Lyte is pursuing a B.A. in Economics and participated in the LinkedInSkills Academyduring Winter 2013. Check out what he has to say about the Academy:

“LinkedIn is a tremendous resource for finding jobs and internships. After attending the LinkedIn SkillsAcademy my profile looked great. I connected with a number of different companies, and found many of job listings I’m interested in. I also connected with former co-workers in a professional context, and got great recommendations from previous employers. The Academy really helped me advance my professional image, and reach out to the organizations I care about.

LinkedIn personalizes the online hiring process by allowing you to connect directly with employers, profile to profile. At the LinkedIn Skills Academy, you learn how to tailor your profile to the career you want. You learn how to build a great profile, find companies you like, and get involved with them. I recommend the LinkedInSkills Academyto any student entering the modern job market. It’s more than just a resource; it’s a path to success.”
