Did you know that taking part in extra-curricular activities beyond your studies not only enriches your overall university experience, but also helps prepare you for the future? You can become an active part of the community, gain confidence, make connections, develop skills and so much more - all of which looks great on your CV and provides examples for future job interviews.

After gaining experience through getting involved in student life and finding part-time work, as well as developing your skills through the Careers and Enterprise Hub and Microsoft Training, you'll now need a place to showcase it all! LinkedIn is like an online CV where you can highlight all your skills, achievements, and knowledge. It's a great place to network, job search, and build a professional community. And if you're looking for support in developing your profile, or starting one from scratch, then the Careers and Enterprise Team can help. Come along to a LinkedIn workshop during National Careers Week on Thursday 9 March where the team can answer your questions and help make your profile the best it can be!
