This week Thursday, April 12th, we will overview other aspects of using social media in our career transition efforts. We will have a guest presenter: Bill Fenson, a long time colleague of mine who is quite knowledgeable on technical matters. He will speak on “the big THREE” (LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter) and other applications and also give focus to the “digital dirt” we all leave behind with our Internet presence.
Come prepared to work on YOUR LinkedIn Profile–bring your laptop… 1) what does your digital fingerprint look like and… 2) Does it work for you in developing your network?
Let’s explore some of the useful functionality available to us– not only built into LinkedIn: Groups, Box.net, Slideshare, and more… but also a myriad of applications available on the Internet, like “shortstack” to help us in developing our own ‘fan page’ in Facebook.
Who should attend?
- Those who might ask… HOW do I get more benefit from social media?
- Those seeking a systematic, focused, more predictable way to conduct an active job search;
- “Regulars” who need a ‘booster shot.’… and bring a guest;
- New Comers and tire kickers… this is a great session with which to supplement your job search effectiveness!
…and don’t forget our monthly sequence of a Wednesday webinar followed by a Thursday morning actual PRACTICE SESSION…
