Establishing My Linkedin
Wednesday 23rd March 2022

Whilst in my final year of university, I have been extremely aware of the importance around gaining connections and allowing your work to be seen. With every visiting guest lecture within my final semester, each talk has pushed the idea of entering competitions, reaching out to local creators and collaborating with similar people. It was a common theme each practitioner enforced, immediately showing me the importance around it. As well as making a start on all of those things, I have been focusing on setting up my Linkedin page. It is a way of connecting with like minded individuals, companies and looking for work.

Over the past several months I have been building my connections by being active on the site and engaging with posts daily. I have also connected with many people on my current BA course. The site was easy to set up and it even gives you step by step instructions to strengthen your page. It encourages the concept of making connections by setting milestones along the way. 

Within my profile, I have added work experience, skills, interests and education/studies. Over time as my practice builds, I will continue to add to this online platform after graduating the course by building the experience and connections I gain in the future. It is important to keep the Linkedin page up to date and relevant so employers are aware of your current interests and stage of life.
