Keep it simple – your profile does not need to be complex; a great starting point is including information directly from your resume.
Complete your profile – incomplete profiles are unattractive to employers. If you are having trouble formatting or wording your profile review those of classmates, alumni, or Elon faculty and staff.
Upload samples of your work – photos, research, presentations, and video add depth to your profile.
Headshot – make sure your headshot is professional; schedule a Professional Photo appointment on the Elon Job Network (EJN)
Keep your profile updated – as you gain experience and skills add them to your profile as it will make you more attractive to employers.
