Research Careers on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a great resource for exploring career paths, not just employment opportunities. We recommend that students create a profile and search the University of Missouri-Columbia page to see what thousands of Mizzou alumni are doing with their degrees. Student-focused resources help you leverage all the possibilities of LinkedIn.
