​A representative of LinkedIn presented a workshop to help American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK) students use the network to find jobs and make contacts.

AURAK regularly runs this course, which usually takes place on campus, but this time the presenter delivered it online due to the social distancing measures in place to combat the COVID-19 epidemic.

Mary Aji, LinkedIn Key Account Director, started by giving some basic information on the work-related social media platform. She said that 9/10 recruiters use LinkedIn and that almost every professional has an account.

When it comes to looking for a job, the presenter recommended using the alumni tool to connect with your fellow alumni because referrals are the best way to get a job. Users should also set up job alerts. She also recommended using LinkedIn’s content by following recruitment agencies, companies and industries.

Ms. Aji. gave participants advice on filling in their profiles, including the importance of having a photo on your page and how to make sure it is appropriate.

She said that the top two activities on the platform were checking out other people, in first place, followed by reading content. Looking for jobs is, perhaps surprisingly, only the third most popular activity on LinkedIn.
