LinkedIn set to launch University Pages and roll out service to high school pupils

LinkedIn has announced on its blog that it is today launching University Pages, as well as being set to allow high school students sign up to the service from next month.

The professional social network has said that the launch of University Pages will help students to get regular updates about campus news and activities from the schools themselves, to ask questions, and engage with both the campus community and alumni of schools.

Christina Allen, director of product management at LinkedIn, added in her blog: “We believe University Pages will be especially valuable for students making their first, big decision about where to attend college.

“Therefore, beginning on September 12, we will be making LinkedIn available to high school students who can use LinkedIn to explore schools worldwide, greatly expand their understanding of the careers available, and get a head start on building a network of family and friends to help guide them at every milestone.”
