LINKEDIN LABS

You know it's important, and you may even have a profile, but most students have yet to unleash the full potential of LinkedIn.

Come to an interactive computer lab session and get your questions answered, no matter how basic. Learn how to launch your professional network - one that you'll be using for the rest of your career!

Questions? Contact Christine (ccorral6@uic.edu)

 


CAREER EXPLORATION: Choosing a Major Workshops

Join us for an interactive session supporting undecided or exploring students.

Answer questions like:

  I'm interested in a lot - how do I pick a major and decide?

  What majors match my interests, abilities, and values?

  I have a major, but is it a good fit?

  What can I do with a major in ___?
