Did you know that adding a profile photo to your LinkedIn account* could result in 14 times more views than someone without?

Back by popular demand, the BEST Program is collaborating with Cornell Graduate Career Services to help you get a professional looking headshot for your LinkedIn profile. Just in time for the annual Cornell Career Fair Days** in Statler Hotel. At no cost to you. REGISTER VIA HANDSHAKE with your netID for a 10 minute slot to have your photo taken. Dress professionally, please arrive 10 minutes early, and DO NOT sign up if you will not show up. Slots are very limited. Have the professional courtesy to email us if an emergency arises. See registration details.

*Don't have a LinkedIn profile? Here's how to GET STARTED. Add your education to increase your profile views 10x. Did you know that 42% of hiring managers view volunteer experience as equivalent to formal work experience? Here are some great additional tips for improving your tagline.

And for all you procrastinators out there, don't wait until you are looking for a job to start networking via LinkedIn--it is designed to help you develop long-term professional relationships and to follow up with people with whom you have met and who understand your research and other interests, career goals and aspirations.
