Wednesday Workshop 5.30 + NLC Info
If you were absent at this Workshop, you can access the slide deck here.
Our wonderful outgoing chapter president Antyush Bollini '18, rather than going over rules for resume building, shared his guidelines for resume building. Click here to look at a document Antyush put together, detailing his guidelines for creating a resume that works specifically for you.
Incoming president Stefan de Villiers '19 gave a helpful introductory lesson on the history, features, and advantages of LinkedIn, a professional networking platform used by millions worldwide. Afterwards, outgoing fundraising lead Matt Houston '18 gave a demonstration by signing up for his own LinkedIn account. Refer to the slide deck linked at the beginning of this post for more details.
After the lesson and demonstration, members broke out to create or update their own LinkedIn profiles. (If you were absent, you should do this -- as Stefan said: in the professional world, it's not always about who you are, it's who you know. An article from the New York Times describing the rise of LinkedIn as a college application item was also shared -- this is a good read.)
National Leadership Conference information
For those who were not present at the NLC competitors' meeting that took place before the Workshop today (and for those who were present), a preliminary itinerary for our time in Baltimore, as well as flight information, was handed out today. The officer team will be organizing the information to make it available to all those who were not present at the meeting, and parents will be receiving emails from Mrs. McCausland as well. For now, National FBLA's NLC Guide can be accessed by clicking here.
