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. The PILC Group on Linkedin allows public service-minded students to connect with alumni across the country and worldwide.
When you find someone with whom you’d like to connect, click “Add to Network.” We recommend including a short message in the space provided, such as:
I am a first-year law student at NYU Law. I found you through the LinkedIn PILC Group. I wonder if you might be willing to take 10 or 15 minutes to speak with me by phone about your career. If so, please let me know a few good times to reach you. Thanks!
