The Ultimate Guide to LinkedIn for High School and College Students

The single most valuable asset you will ever have is your professional reputation.

Today, we are connected to a global audience through our online digital identity.  Knowing how to create a rock solid Professional Online presence is the most important digital skill you will learn. Your digital identity will determine your career opportunities.

When you have a strong Professional Brand, colleges and employers flock to you, they are loyal to you, and your brand has enough built-in trust to withstand scrutiny by others or by technology.  But, if you have a weak or a damaged Professional Brand, then it is hard to stand out from other students, you’ll struggle to attract opportunities.

Yet, most students have virtually no strategy or process to shape their Digital Identity.  Because of that, they lose college, employment, and intern opportunities and lose the trust of the professional community as they are evaluated by technology as a brand risk for those who interact with them.   A staggering 90% of student online activity may cause Professional Brand harm or limit career opportunities.

Colleges and Employers are looking for students that have mastered Professional Branding on Social Media.  Earning the Advantage Talent Empowered User Essentials Digital Skills Badge is the best way to:
