E03: Experience LinkedIn


LinkedIn is the most important global professional networking site. Many ICS students have obtained jobs just by having an appropriate listing in LinkedIn.

For this assignment, you will continue to develop your professional persona by creating a profile on LinkedIn. Go to LinkedIn and create a profile, if you do not have one already.

You should strive to achieve an “All-Star” LinkedIn profile:

See 7 easy steps to achieve All-Star profile strength for details. Note that 50 connections might be hard to achieve in a couple of days, so you may have to settle for “Expert” until you get there.

Be sure to provide a link to LinkedIn as part of your professional portfolio home page. Note that although your LinkIn profile will overlap somewhat with your Professional Portfolio site, you can go into much greater depth on your projects and accomplishments in your portfolio than you can in LinkedIn.
