So, what's the difference between a resume and LinkedIn profile? Eighty-seven percent of recruiters are using LinkedIn to attract and find their next employee and 92% of recruiters prefer to hire through LinkedIn rather than any other social network. Additionally, learning from what alumni and other professionals have done in their career is a great way to explore areas of interest and majors. This workshop is designed to walk students through building their own LinkedIn profile and the value of a LinkedIn profile.
