Social media makes it easy to share your work, connect with role models, and get noticed online. Or at least, it should be easy – but there are so many platforms and so much content you could put out there, it’s hard to know where to start.
During our panel and breakout sessions with top NYC pros, you’ll learn how to:
- Feel less intimidated by all the possibilities of social media
- Fill your LinkedIn profile with things recruiters want to see
- Use 140 characters or less to make a new connection
- Build a strong personal brand online
- Manage your profiles with easy-to-use tools and tips
How it Works:
- Social media pros will tell their stories of how their online presence helped them build their brand and get their dream job.
- Then, you can ask them your questions on building your personal brand online during small, intimate breakout sessions.
