Creating online profiles with LinkedIn

Enhance your online personal brand

Thursday, 5 March 2020 (7 pm - 10 pm)


When you are looking for a job, a presence on LinkedIn is almost indispensable. You can use LinkedIn to find jobs but also to raise your profile as a specialist and let employers find you.

Why might this training session be useful for you? You know that LinkedIn is the largest business social network in the Netherlands, but perhaps you have never taken the time to fully get to know it. Your profile is not optimally filled in and you are not quite sure how you can get more out of LinkedIn. Or perhaps you don’t even have a LinkedIn profile yet. 

You’re not the only one! Attend this LinkedIn training session and together with other graduating students and alumni from The Hague University of Applied Sciences you will get to work on:

  • Creating and/or optimising your profile
  • Expanding your network
  • Actively using the timeline on LinkedIn
  • Asking for and providing references

After completing this training session, you will understand how LinkedIn works and you will have a good grasp of the basics. Our photographer will be on hand this evening to take your portrait photo which you can use for your LinkedIn profile!
