Each summer New York City is filled with new graduates, new interns, and new opportunities for any young, ambitious creative. Join us for our Summer Mixer Series at Wix: three events that will bring together creative interns, recent grads, and young professionals for a night of mingling, new friends, and connections. Each event will feature a short and inspiring keynote from an established creative professional speaking to a different theme.
Our final topic: Maintain & Grow Your Network
Keynote Speaker: Tina Yip, Jr. Social Media Strategist at mcgarrybowen
Whether the end of summer means staying in New York or taking your talents elsewhere, how do you maintain all of your new connections? Social media is a great way to sustain your presence — but should you use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or all three, oh my! The amount of tools for connecting is endless. Hear advice on how to use social media to continue relationships over long distance and periods of time from one of our favorite community members, Tina Yip, Jr. Social Media Strategist at mcgarrybowen, and enjoy a short workshop from Wix.com.
