Beta Gamma Sigma Information Session Spring 2014

Beta Gamma Sigma has again hosted its semi-annual Cotsakos College of Business professional enrichment event on March 11, 2014. The primary objective was to emphasize the benefits of joining the William Paterson Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter and the importance of utilizing LinkedIn as a professional networking tool.

Many students attended the session to learn more about joining Beta Gamma Sigma. Attendees were informed that being part of the prestigious honor society is not only something to put on a resume but it is also beneficial when establishing a network of high- achieving professionals. Students who attended the session learned that it is a significant achievement to be inducted into the society.

During the second half of the event, students learned about the ever-growing significance establishing a carefully selected network on LinkedIn and utilizing it to its maximum capability. Frequent preservation and use of one’s LinkedIn can give him or her the extra edge in the competitive professional world because it is becoming increasingly common for potential employers to review your profile prior to hiring you. LinkedIn profiles should be designed to give a snapshot of who you as a professional and they should differentiate you from the rest of the candidates.

If you missed the event and are interested in knowing more on the proceeding subjects, a professional event on similar topics is scheduled to be held during the fall semester. The date, time and location of the fall event have not been determined yet.‚Äč
