Rock Your LinkedIn Profile Workshop


This opportunity is open to all DMU students. The maximum number of places for this event is 15. Please check our eligibility criteria for further details.


In cooperation with our partner, Pagoda Projects, DMU Global will be offering twenty online events throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. All events are employability focused and aim to give students an insight into topics related to the international working world.

During this session students will have a unique opportunity to learn tips and tricks from the Senior Product Consultant Talent Solutions and Senior Account Executive at LinkedIn.

Students will explore how to create a LinkedIn profile that brings their personal career story to life, whether they are just starting out, seeking to advance, or making a career change. The instructors will offer tips on tailoring each section, starting with the key insight that a LinkedIn profile is unique and shouldn’t be approached exactly like a resume. Speakers will also cover ways to add media to a profile, methods for showcasing career accomplishments and aspirations, and specific examples of profile phrases and language that can help inspire personal story.
