LinkedIn

What’s the big deal about LinkedIn? Wondering why it’s for YOU as a college student? Watch the video to find out.

LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, was launched in 2003 and had around 4,500 users the first month. In late 2015, LinkedIn had 380,000,000 members!

The fastest growing demographic using LinkedIn is YOU – college students and recent college graduates. As of October 2015, there were over 39 million students and recent college graduates using LinkedIn.

94% of recruiters use LinkedIn to evaluate candidates – this is powerful information if you are job searching!

LinkedIn makes it easy to connect with other HPU alumni. Search by company, geographic location, major, activity, or career field. Reach out to professionals whose career path is relevant to your interests.

In addition, we have developed resources to help you make the most of using LinkedIn. Please use the links to access our:
