Virtual Networking. How do we network for jobs when we can’t leave the house? Through LinkedIn! We offer you two levels of LinkedIn support: creating your LinkedIn account (if you don’t have one already or are very new to LinkedIn) or how to best use your existing LinkedIn account to look for a job and expand your network.
Contact: email@example.com and if you have a LinkedIn account, let us know (or send the link to your account!) and if you don’t have an account yet, that’s okay! Let us know you want to create a LinkedIn account and we will set you up.
