Get involved in the Personal Brand Hackathon

The Student Success Academy is hosting a Personal Brand Hackathon for students on Saturday 3 December, 9am-4pm at West Park Teaching Hub.

LinkedIn Learning has partnered with the Success Academy to deliver this event.

This hackathon is open to all students, regardless of their year of study or degree. It will not involve coding or programming so anyone can sign up.

The day will consist of an introduction to what the task is and then students will go off in groups to other rooms to start working on what they want to produce. The task itself is secret until the day but the theme is personal brand. There’ll be a few check-in points across the day to help keep you on track, and there will be lots of resources for you to utilise (plus a free lunch). You will present your idea at the end of the day and a judging panel will then choose the winners and runners-up.

The prizes are as follows:

  • The winning team gets a free LinkedIn Premium subscription for 6 months
  • The winning team and runners-up get a tour of the LinkedIn London office (transport provided)

You can join as part of a team of five or individually. If you join individually, you will be put into a team on the day.

The deadline for signups is Wednesday 30 November.

Join the Personal Brand Hackathon.
