More than 600 faculty, staff and students had their professional portraits taken by NIU’s Institutional Communications photography staff at Career Services’ Fall Career and Internship Fair.
These portraits offer a professional first impression on LinkedIn, whether you are just starting your career or looking to expand your network. Additionally, they can be used on Outlook to put a friendly face to your name.
“We understand the importance of having a professional photo in today’s digital age and are pleased to offer annual opportunities to faculty, staff and students,” said Taylor Hayden, assistant director of digital content in Institutional Communications.
“The most efficient way for us to continue to offer this service is to invite faculty and staff to attend the photo booth at the career fairs,” said Hayden. “With two in the fall and three in the spring, faculty and staff will have five convenient opportunities annually to have their photos taken.”
Better Because of our Campus Partners
Part of the success of the photo booth at the career fairs is the collaboration and partnership between Institutional Communications and Career Services.
“We appreciate our partners in Career Services, and we look forward to finding other ways to collaborate on key events and programs in the future,” said Hayden.
Document Services is another key partner, as they manage all photo reprinting services. Faculty, staff and students can now take advantage of the Document Services Storefront to order prints of photos.
Institutional Communications will have a photo booth at the following fairs in spring 2018: Spring Internship & Job Fair on Tuesday, Feb. 20, NIU Education and Health Professional Fair on Monday, Feb. 26, and the Government, Public Sector and Social Services Job Fair on Wednesday, March 21.
