Student comments from past workshops"
"LinkedIn has been one of the most invaluable workshops at UMass Lowell.  I started small with my profile and have built it up over the past year.  Over the past month in my job search, I have talked with multiple people about their companies through informational interviews which I got all through the medium of LinkedIn.  It has been an invaluable tool in my job search."  -  Derek, Class of 2013
