LinkedIn is a networking site that allows members to create professional profiles to share with Groups (for example, alumni networks) and/or individuals. Membership is free and setting up a profile takes about five minutes. Simply go to www.linkedin.com to get started. Once you have set up your profile, select “Groups,” in the upper-right hand Search box, type “NYU Public Interest Law Center,” and click on “Join this Group.”
The PILC Group on Linkedin allows public service-minded students to connect with alumni across the country and world-wide.
Once you’ve found someone with whom you’d like to connect, just click on “add to network.” We recommend including a short message in the space provided, such as:
I am a first-year law student at NYU. I found you through the Linkedin PILC Group. I wonder if you might be willing to take ten or fifteen minutes to speak with me by phone about your career. If so, please let me know a few good times to reach you. Thanks!
