Join social media professionals Derek and Erin for a hands-on workshop on how to leverage LinkedIn as a young professional.

As an added bonus, new headshots will be taken for anyone interested. Please bring a computer/tablet and have a LinkedIn account created (doesn't have to be completely filled out) to participate in the hands-on portion.
