What Should I Publish?

Write What You Know

Draw from your life experiences, whether it's in the classroom, an extracurricular activity, or your internship. Take your own knowledge and use it to provide insight. 

Make the Most of Assignments

Publish or repurpose your essays, research and other academic assignments on LinkedIn. Crosspost your content from other sources such as a student newspaper or blog.

Share Firsthand Accounts

What obstacles have you overcome? What challenges have you faced? What inspires you to do what you do? Share your experiences and any lessons learned.

Make Observations

Noticed any trends? Seeing something new or interesting? Had a conversation that got you thinking? Provide insight or weigh in on the world around you.

Consider the Headlines

What’s being covered in the news? What are the stories people are talking about? Use the news as a conversation starter or in a way that connects it back to your own major or interest.
