Preparing students for engagement at conferences is a common missed opportunity. In 2019, LinkedIn’s Campus team partnered with TMCF to host a Building Your Professional Brand webinar available to all TMCF conference attendees. We provided a new opportunity, enabling students to maximize their engagement at the conference. Our three days at the conference included: networking, coffee chats, recruitment booth presence, professional headshots, and consultation sessions. We plan to continue up-leveling our engagement year-after-year to give students of Historically Black College Universities (HBCUs) /Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs) an opportunity to build a professional presence.
