Are your students LinkedIn?  

LinkedIn is becoming a popular place for posting jobs and sharing career information.  Bio-Link's LinkedIn group has grown rapidly in past few months, and now has 311 members, and 60% of whom are professionals in the biotech industry.  We posted a slide presentation on using LinkedIn earlier in the year and will writing more about this in the future.  In the meantime, you and your students may want to connect to LinkedIn and see what it has to offer.
