When we think about networking we often think about mixers, events, conferences, and coffee meetings. While in-person networking is key to your success, you can also build meaningful relationships to enhance your professional networks by using various social media channels. In this session, networking expert and CEO of Career Girl Network, Marcy Twete, will lead you through the process of developing your professional brand online and using it to build the network of your dreams.
The workshop will tackle the fine line between the personal and professional on Facebook and LinkedIn; using Twitter to develop friendships and become a thought-leader; and dive into lesser known social media channels specific to the nonprofit sector and other fields. You will walk away ready to use your social media channels to land a new job, gain valuable contacts, and brand yourself as a leader in your industry - all from the comfort of your own computer.
