In today’s post we are going to take a look across the pond to our friends in the US and in particular, the launch of LinkedIn Students, an app that aims to help graduates build a professional network and begin their career.
Career service and university colleagues will probably think of LinkedIn as an online CV. However, the sector has recently become aware of its importance as a research tool, career explorer, and news aggregator. It’s not just professionals taking advantage, students are too. As students are their fastest growing demographic LinkedIn has put a tremendous amount of effort into building and releasing LinkedIn Students which hits app stores in the US yesterday (18/04/2016). Depending on its success, the UK will hopefully see its release in the next few months -that means we have some time to prepare!
Take a look at what you can expect and the key actions for UK universities below.
