Using LinkedIn

Why Use LinkedIn?

Your LinkedIn profile is your online professional presence. It serves as an online résumé, in which you have expanded space to discuss and describe more about your work and leadership experiences. Furthermore, LinkedIn is a powerful networking tool. Once your profile is established, you can use LinkedIn to “meet” people in your field, University of Hartford alumni, and stay in touch with past professional contacts.

LinkedIn also provides easy access to articles and thought-leaders in your field of interest. You can use the LinkedIn news feed to help you stay connected to current events in your field, stay up to date on what is happening at a specific company, and learn from important leaders in your area of study.
