During PSCHE, Year 13 students received an informative talk from Kim Travers, ex Head of HR Services for Transport for London (TFL), about the benefits of joining LinkedIn, a social network or professionals. With many years of experience in recruitment, Kim was able to offer a valuable insight into how employers use LinkedIn to find employees and exactly what employers are looking for when looking for potential candidates. We learnt about how this social network could be used to find jobs, research companies and get in touch with alumni of the school who could help you achieve your career goals. She also made students aware of what makes a great LinkedIn profile as well as presenting examples of what not to add to it. Year 13 very much enjoyed her presentation and look forward to creating their own ‘personal brand’ using LinkedIn in the near future.
