We are excited for this encore presentation of the Linkedin Guys to share their expertise, in partnership with alumniUBC, Faculty of Arts and Centre for Student Involvement & Careers.  

As we begin to emerge from the sudden effects of COVID-19 and the economic shift, we know that there is still so much up in the air and it will take time for us to have a clear picture of the new landscape. We acknowledge that many new grad and alumni job-seekers are facing a challenging road ahead.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand the immediate and long-term career impacts of the pandemic
  • Adjust your interviewing strategy to make the most of video interviews
  • Stand out from the competition with recruiters and hiring managers on LinkedIn
  • Chart your career course to the industries and firms poised to hire throughout the crisis and beyond
