  • How to Update Your Profile Picture

    As you start to navigate in myAMATYC and the Project GAINS Online Community, we'd encourage you to update your Profile Picture 

    Update Your Profile Picture

    If you're wondering why this is important, one reason from this article on Why it's important to update your profile is "If a potential employer is looking for you online and sees the same photo of you on your blog that she sees on a professional or academic site related to your field of work, it confirms that you're active in your field."
