Have You Announced Your Graduation on LinkedIn Publisher?

linkedin gradI just saw a creative and powerful use of LinkedIn Publisher…

Nicholas Anfeldt, a 2015 grad in Computer Security, announced his achievement to his 500+ member network with this headline:

Graduated – DeVry – Magna Cum Laude – Golden Key Int’l. Society

After seeing this unique use of Publisher, it occurred to me: Whether you’ve recently finished your bachelor’s, master’s, or Ph.D…

LinkedIn Publisher is a top place to share your news. A no-brainer!

I clicked through to Nicholas’ profile from his post and learned that he’s still looking for a position in cyber security. If you, like Nicholas, are looking for work, go ahead and use a bit of your announcement to describe the type of job you want to find now that you have your degree. Of course, if you already have a job, share that good news as part of your announcement.

This is a fun way to let everyone in your network know you’re looking… and a great way to show employers you’re a creative, resourceful candidate.

Cheers, Nicholas. Job well done!
