Linked In

Posted by cservaes on September 19, 2011 in "Academic Programs", Alumni, Community, "Current Students", Faculty/Staff, "The College" Ottawa University’s LinkedIn profile has more than 450 followers. Some are current students. Some are alumni. Some are faculty members. And some are friends of the University. Followers of OU’s LinkedIn profile can stay up-to-date with University happenings, visit with former classmates and make connections with potential employers. The latter is where Susan Webb, director of career services and student employment, comes in. Webb says she encourages students to utilize the website because of its innovation and ease of use. “Networking is key,” says Webb. “For students looking for a job, it can be a good resource.” Webb says the site also makes it easy for users to search for and locate friends, coworkers and people they have lost touch with. “People are using LinkedIn more and more,” says Webb.
