LinkedIn Photo Shoot 

Thursday, December 21, 2017
Hubbard Room

Once every three months,in place of the job/networking group, we offer professional portraits for patrons' LinkedIn profiles. The photo session will begin at 10:00 am and conclude at 12:00 noon; no appointment is necessary and each sitting takes just a few minutes. Participants need to have an email address where their image can be sent. 

Remember to dress as you would for an interview and that the photo will be a 'headshot' - usually from the top of the shoulders. Images will be send via email in 2-5 days.
