The Puget Sound Parents LinkedIn group is a members-only career development networking resource for students. Created and moderated by the Parents Council Career Development Committee, the group connects parent members with students seeking information about various careers. In this group you can start discussions, post articles and advice about your field, and provide information about pathways into careers. View the invitation from the committee chair.

What to Expect from Students
Viewing member profiles: Looking at the profile of professionals in a particular career field provides a wealth of information about the various pathways into the field and types of organizations and roles to target along the way. Even if students don’t reach out to you, simply by being a part of the group you are already serving as an important career development resource for students!
Posing questions to the group: Students may pose questions to the group asking for advice or suggestions. If you have knowledge of the topic, feel free to respond in the discussion forum or ask the student to send you a message directly.
Responding to material shared by group members: Members may share relevant articles and news items about their career fields, and students may respond with questions.
Reaching out directly to connect: Students may connect with you directly, particularly if they are already a second-degree connection (perhaps via your son or daughter). You are under no obligation to connect if you don’t want to. All we ask is that you respond if a student reaches out to you directly.
In order to keep this group environment effective, please keep the conversation polite, positive, and pertinent. Members may use the forum only for the purpose as described. Use of the group for commercial, political, solicitation or other unrelated activities is prohibited.
Thank you for contributing to the success of Puget Sound students!
