Tech Spotlight: LinkedIn

So much of what students in college stress about is what they are going to do after they graduate. But did you know that you can use your savy social media skills to help build business connections?


LikedIn is a social networking site focused on cultivating professional relationships. LinkedIn can be accessed through its website on your computer or mobile app on your device.


With the search bar, you can find people, companies and jobs. Edit your profile to include a picture, your education and previous employment, as well as skills and interests.


It’s free to get started. Upgrading to a premium membership allows you to see who’s viewed your profile in the last 90 days, contact anyone on LinkedIn through InMail, access to detailed job and salary insights and video courses.


Need help getting started? Stony Brook University’s Career Center can help you put your best profile together!
