Students are strongly encouraged to create, update, and maintain a LinkedIn profile. Many employers will go directly to this profile when considering your internship employment. LinkedIn provides you with an opportunity to upload your current resume, as well as plenty of other information such as links to your online portfolio, examples of web design work, copies of papers you’ve written, etc.
Remember that LinkedIn is not merely a regurgitation of your resume. It should be treated as much more than that.
