We all know that having a complete LinkedIn profile is important to our job search strategy but I’ll bet you have questions about HOW to complete your profile and about HOW to actually use it for your job search. If this sounds like you, join me for an informal LinkedIn discussion, ask your questions, and get answers. ASIST student profiles will be used as examples.
