LinkedIn is a social media networking tool that focuses on professional connections. You can search for people in your field, join job groups to learn about your industry, and enhance your online presence for potential employers. It is more extensive than a resume and you should take advantage of the opportunity to offer detailed information to a prospective contact. Career Development and Alumni Relations sponsor a professional networking group, called Roosevelt Connect, on LinkedIn to facilitate discussions among current students, alumni and employers.

Students and alumni: your LinkedIn profile is your official “face” for members of this group.
