LinkedIn Help for New Graduates

on May 9, 2013

If you’re a college grad who doesn’t have a job yet, spending your summer searching can be terrifying, demoralizing, and heartbreaking. Yikes. At least you can use all that time at your parents’ place to do something you’re probably doing anyways: hang out Sorry, this post isn't about cupcakes. But it is about graduation!on social media.

I’ve written before about how social media landed me my first job out of college, and I’ve written before about how to use LinkedIn. In this article, which you can read over at Social Media Today, I’ll specifically focus on LinkedIn for new graduates. Sorry I can’t post the full text here; I gave SocialMediaToday an exclusive.

If you’d like some individualized feedback on your LinkedIn profile, I am offering a new graduate special. I will provide detailed feedback and suggested improvements for $25.

If you don’t have much there yet, you can send over your resume, or an informal description of your past and your goals, and I’ll guide you on what to include and how to include it. If you’re interested, contact me at tracyc@tracycgold.com and include some proof that you graduated or will graduate this year, such as a receipt from your cap and gown, your transcript, or an email from your school about graduation.

Note: Thanks to Intero Advisory for all of the LinkedIn wisdom!

    Hello Tracy,

    I am interested in your feedback regarding my LinkedIn profile. I will be emailing you proof that I am currently an undergraduate senior and I will also email you my resume. I will be graduating June 15th of this year and I will be attending graduate school to pursue a master’s degree in structural engineering this coming Fall. I will be attending either the University of Southern California (USC) or Columbia University next year (I actually have until this Friday May, 17th to make a decision).

    I am aiming at getting an internship over summer (I know it’s a little late for that, but I will still give it a shot) or even while in school, so I can have some professional experience under my belt before I graduate from graduate school. Please let me know if you would like to know anything else. Look forward to hearing from you!

    All the best,
    Oscar Ortiz
