It was good to have a designated time for me to finally sit down and fix my profile. I liked that we could work on our own and could ask for help when needed.

I hardly knew anything about LinkedIn and was kind of reluctant to join so this was a great way to break the ice, hear even more about how LinkedIn is beneficial for your job search/ portfolio and it was awesome to have a space where people could answer my questions about how the site worked while I was getting set up.
