We started off November with a flight out to Phoenix, AZ to present at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Scientists. We shared with students the ins and outs of networking as they prepped to meet numerous colleges and recruiters. We talked about the A to Z of making business cards to creating a LinkedIn profile. The students really enjoyed it, commenting on how beneficial it was for them and how excited they were to use what they learned at the conference. We were happy to provide them with the tools they needed to find their match!
We had faculty in the audience who also found it beneficial and remarked “I am a professor, and I even learned something new! Who knew LinkedIn could be so powerful!”
