LinkedIn Photo Shoot

Once every three months on Thursday morning, the Hubbard Room at the Russell Library is transformed into a professional photo studio. Bob Carlson and Jeff Grant, on staff at the library will photograph you at your best so you can post the shot to your LinkedIn account. It generally only takes a few minutes and your hi-res image will be emailed to you. No appointment is necessary as it is first come first served. An email is required.

Quarterly photo sessions are held throughout the year in March, June, September and December. See the Job and Career Newsletter or the Russell Library online calendar for the next scheduled photo shoot.
