Career Center Paying for Linkedin Premium Accounts

I think the Carrer Center should pay for the option for sophomores, juniors and seniors to have LinkedIn premium accounts while at Davidson. I think it should be an opt-in program, as somebody would specifically have to go to the career center and ask for this. Networking is the #1 way to secure jobs and Linkedin Premium has significant advantages such as more messaging, profile views and you can see different profiles.
