Last chance to get help with your LinkedIn profile for UCOP Connect
If you’d like to find out more about UCOP Connect, the new LinkedIn collaboration group for UCOP staff, you still have time to attend the final drop-in training session today, Tuesday, June 24, 2 to 4 p.m. in 7107 Franklin. (Click link to add event to your Outlook calendar.)
Members of the UCOP Connect team (see list below) will answer your questions, provide hands-on help in creating your profile on LinkedIn and give you tips for ways to interact with the UCOP Connect group.
The idea for UCOP Connect emerged as part of the president’s Efficiency Review. Its purpose is to boost engagement and make it easier to reach colleagues in different parts of the organization. It provides an informal way to raise issues, ask for help, exchange information and break out of work “silos” that sometimes limit OP’s effectiveness.
UCOP Connect is the place to come to ask colleagues for help with a project, answer a question or discuss an article that catches your eye in, for example, the Chronicle of Higher Education. Looking to run an idea past a group of colleagues? Hoping for some Excel tips? Want to share a favorite neighborhood lunch spot? Use UCOP Connect to help reach out.
Feel free to email any of the members of the team if you have questions about the group or LinkedIn.
