Workshop LinkedIn profile and pitch

This workshop is meant for students and recent graduates who wish to prepare for (this specific practical part of) networking. Presenting yourself in a clear and effective way is an essential part of your job search. In this workshop you will get a clear(er) view on how to present your knowledge, skills and values on your LinkedIn profile. An important part of your (online and offline) presentation is a powerful pitch, that can be used for LinkedIn, in live contact and/or on your CV. During this workshop we will also address what embodies a powerful pitch. In this workshop we will present examples and practical tips for getting the attention of (future) employers (through your LinkedIn profile and pitch)! The further use of LinkedIn in orienting, searching and networking for a job, will be the focus of the workshop Finding your dream job.
