We all know that networking is a crucial skill to have in today's professional world. How can we practice networking without seeing anyone in person? Luckily, we can grow our network through digital tools. In this session, we will look at the basics of LinkedIn and how to use it for networking. As students and recent grads, it can be hard to differentiate ourselves from every other entry-level candidate.
- Very brief overview of optimising your LinkedIn profile
- Creating your networking strategy
- How to reach out to a “stranger”
- Content creation as a means for social proof
Presenter: Sophie Michaud
Sophie moved to Finland from Eastern Canada four years ago. She studied business psychology at Metropolia AMK and HFT Stuttgart. Now she works as a content marketing manager at Supermetrics. It took months of applying and trying the traditional job searching route to realise it wasn't working and trying the networking route instead. Now, she stays involved in the immigrant and student communities to help others achieve their professional goals.
My Future Work is Arcada's annual recruiting event where students get to network and meet employers – as well as learn new skills through our various workshops. My Future Work 2021 is hosted via Zoom.
