LinkedIn: A MUST
As a student, LinkedIn is a great way to be introduced to the working world. It allows your resume to be presented in an easy-to-read format and made accessible to a large audience (similar to Facebook, you can restrict who can see your profile).
For those in co-op, it is an absolute must that you create a LinkedIn profile. It provides a simple solution to following up on interviews, researching companies and reading up on panel members who will be interviewing you.
I’ve also used LinkedIn to send a quick thank-you after being interviewed. It is also a great way to connect with fellow students. You might not have known that your friends, people in your program, or people that you know, are currently working at a company or organization where you want your next job to be.
