The Office of Information Technology was pleased to be part of last night’s Hegi Family Career Development Center All Majors Career & Internship Fair.  As we continue to promote our campus license for lynda.com (a leading online learning platform), don’t forget that once you complete a course, you can capitalize on that to enhance your LinkedIn profile. This is an excellent way to showcase your hands-on experience and practical knowledge of a skill set you’ve acquired.

Certificates of Completion

Certificates of completion can be accessed through your lynda.com profile and posted to your LinkedIn page directly. This is a great way to show an employer your willingness to learn a new skill and your experience in a particular software (or proficiency) even if you haven’t yet used that skill set professionally.
