LinkedIn is a great professional platform for expanding your network online and is quickly becoming the standard for professional networking 

Tip #1: Connect with your friends, relatives, professors, supervisors, co-workers from current & past jobs, other students, peers, friends’ parents, parents’ friends, etc. LinkedIn will then suggest people you may already know to help you build your network. 

Tip #2: Use the Emory University section of LinkedIn- in the main search box, type in Emory University & select the one with the Emory shield. There are 77,000+ Emory alums in that section. You can search them by location, major, job titles, keywords, etc. 

 

Shifting to a Virtual Learning Environnement is a fantastic opportunity to improve your abilities in career-related skills.

To start, read the job descriptions of roles that interest you. If you repeatedly see a specific requirement that you are lacking, start familiarizing yourself with that skillset and try to develop that new skill.  Also, talk to alumni & professionals who can recommend important skills that could give you an edge in the application process by reaching out/doing informational interviews. Once you’ve done those things, use any of the resources below to assist you.
