There’s no doubt that social media is here to stay. From Facebook to Twitter, to YouTube to Pinterest, social media is the leading way to get connected today.

As LinkedIn continues to increase in popularity as social media’s tool for professional networking, the Career Center is educating Illinois State students on how to make the most of the online tool by hosting the “Are you LinkedIn?” workshop on March 1 at noon and April 9 at 4 p.m. both at the Career Center and on . Students will learn how LinkedIn can help one land a job, and how to manage a LinkedIn account as a professional.

Participants are required to bring their own laptop, iPad, or other electronic device to access the Web, as none will be provided. Participants also need to set up their own LinkedIn accounts prior to attending this course. Reservations are required to attend and can be made by contacting the Career Center at (309) 438-2200.
