LinkedIn Tips

LinkedIn Tips: Whenever you update your resume, don't forget to update all of your online profiles, including LinkedIn.  Take the time to check any links in those profiles to make sure they aren't broken or otherwise dead (for example, including a link to your locked/private twitter account should not be on your LinkedIn profile). Need more guidance? Check out the LinkedIn Professionalism programs on April 7th or 13th. After a quick half hour, you'll also be eligible to be invited to join the College of Law Alumni group on LinkedIn. RSVP in Symplicity today!  Also in the Symplicity Document Library are a series of checklists on setting up a profile, online networking etiquette, researching employers, and more.  Use 'LinkedIn' as your keyword in the Document Library search.

What else should you consider when you arrange an Informational Interview?  Let's make sure we cover some etiquette basics.  For a fantastic primer, come check out Donna and David Gerson's Modern Rules of Business Etiquette, which covers everything from dinner interviews, supervising a secretary, working with senior partners, and so many other scenarios.  Check out Geeta Shah's timely book review as well.  If you'd also like to quiz yourself (and perhaps your friends), check out this pop quiz on etiquette blog posting from last semester.
