Saint Mary's Gael Women in Business LinkedIn Workshop

LinkedIn Workshop

On September 20th and 21st, Gael Women in Business hosted a two-part LinkedIn Workshop with guest speaker Ami Arroyo (Talent Acquisition Consultant & Recruiting Strategist) and our SEBA Marketing Director, Daniel Avina. The first event was a virtual session with Ami Arroyo who provided great insights on how to best navigate LinkedIn from a recruiter's perspective. The second event was a headshot session with Daniel Avina where students were given the chance to take professional photos for LinkedIn in front of our Soda Center on campus. Join GWIB today for more professional workshops, mentorship opportunities, networking sessions, and more!

I joined Gael Women in Business. . .

because of the opportunity to give back and connect with amazing women on campus. As a commuter student I felt disconnected to campus my first year and ever since I joined GWIB I can definitely say that is no longer the case. Putting on useful events with my extraordinary team is the greatest reward that I could ask for.
