To maximize your success in the Social Media Lab, we encourage you to attend the free Social Media: An Introduction workshop and set-up a basic LinkedIn profile before attending the Social Media Lab.
Once your registration for the workshop is completed, you will receive an email confirming your registration. In that email, please look for the link to the Job Seeker LinkedIn Profile Questionnaire. Complete as much of the questionnaire as possible before attending the Social Media Lab.
We will review the questionnaire in the workshop; however, having the questionnaire completed before the workshop allows the facilitator to move more quickly to the key components of LinkedIn. You do NOT have to set-up a Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or Blog account in advance of the workshop.
This class takes place in the computer lab and it is expected that you will have intermediate keyboarding, computer and internet navigation skills.
Networking is one of the most important components of job searching and social media is a great tool for expanding your network. Whether looking for your first job, exploring a career change, or setting yourself up for future success, social media sites have proven to be important platforms for facilitating connections, demonstrating passions and interests, and landing the job you actually want.
In this full day, hands-on workshop, you will learn how to use LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and even a Blog to enhance your career and boost your job search. The facilitator will:
* Show you how to set up and optimize each site
* Show you how to connect with strategic influencers who can connect you to job or career development possibilities
* Make sure your platform and privacy settings are accurate in order to protect you as a job seeker
* Show you what NOT to do
* Provide you with tips and strategies to make sure you have the best experience possible with each platform
By the end of the class you will have functional profiles and the beginnings of a workable network (that you can build upon), as well as strategies that you can implement immediately to succeed in using social media. You will also receive a comprehensive workbook.
(This class includes a one hour lunch break on your own. Feel free to bring your own lunch.)
