First-year business students at Coastal Carolina University are encouraged to create their LinkedIn profiles while taking UNIV 110B. According to Brianne Parker, director of student success and transition in the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration, focusing on a professional online presence is a hallmark of the class and serves the students well as they seek internships and jobs after graduation.

Photographers in University Marketing and Communication take the students’ professional headshots, which students then upload on their LinkedIn profiles, Handshake (an online recruiting platform for students and alumni), and other social media sites to build their professional portfolio. Each student also creates a resume and has it critiqued via the Wall Center for Excellence.
