In this session, we were joined by HelloGrads with their pop-up LinkedIn Photo Booth where attendees could get a professional self-portrait for free.

Every month we focussed on either general career advice or industry professionals, with the alternating focus on a specialist area such as Fashion, Tech, Theatre, Art and Music. January 2019 led with a general theme.

Attendeees gained first-hand experience for their own career development, learnt about the different roles within arts organisations and seek advice for your own creative career. In this session, we also had HelloGrads joining us with their pop-up LinkedIn Photo Booth where attendees could get a professional self-portrait for free. As well as portrait shots, HelloGrads will gave away their LinkedIn hackpack (guide to setting up and using LinkedIn).
