* Give students the tools to pursue opportunities in the invisible job network.

* Deliver best practices on getting the most out of informational interviewing, including actionable intelligence to further the job search.

* Walk through key tips and tricks for how to use BrownConnect and LinkedIn in tandem to find alum who are doing things that interest you and how to get alum to respond to your requests for informational interviewing.

Presenters: Jim Amspacher, Associate Director Career Counseling, Careers in the Common Good, and Karina Bao '21.5, Political Science.

Please bring your laptop for an interactive session featuring key tips and tricks for using BrownConnect and LinkedIn to network with alumni.
