How can I utilize LinkedIn as a student?
LinkedIn is a crucial part of one's professional presence nowadays. It is often listed on resumes and email signatures now, so it's important to have an up to date and relevant LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn provides groups to have industry-specific discussions, job listings to filter out relevant jobs of interest, and messaging features to network with people across the globe. It is a useful took to have and use daily regardless if you are a student, young professional, or seasoned professional. LinkedIn offers numerous features that will help you meet people, explore career paths, and learn about different schools and companies.
What is the best way to organize citations?
As I begin to draft or write my assignment, it's important to verify what writing style my instructor requires. This way I can research and explore the type of citations, cover pages, and overall formatting. Each style is very different, so knowing ahead of time can help me collect the info I need as I write and use resources (such as author names and publication years). If I know what's needed, I can slowly start to collect everything and then clean it up at the very end. I will have all of the important information and can now focus on my content and final formatting.

How do you organize study time and course expectations for each subject?
I examine all of my different subjects, interests, and responsibilities. I select a few topics that need more attention and support, such as research classes or mathematics courses. I am not the strongest in these fields, so I recognize that I need to set aside more time and energy to obtain this information and complete the assignments. I rank and order my remaining subjects and create a priority list. I also review each course's syllabus to understand what is expected of me. This helps me know the "busy" and "slow" times of each course so I can create an individual study and work plan. It is important to recognize my strengths and weaknesses and thoroughly understand what is expected of me in each course to perform my best.
