Follow and Promote @Yourself Online: Defrag and Optimize Your #OnlineBrand
Thursday, May 22, 2014, noon – 1:00 pm (ET)
Presented by Kathleen Oppenheimer Berkey, AICP Attorney at Law and Certified Land Planner
In these “tech times,” first impressions are very rarely made face-to-face. Potential employers, colleagues, clients, and competitors will likely research you online before ever meeting you. Accordingly, it is very important to refine and optimize your online professional image, or your “online brand,” to ensure it best represents you as a person and as a professional.
As an attendee of this webinar you will learn how to effectively:
• Showcase your skills and expertise online;
• Network and connect with industry leaders through social media and social networking sites;
• Research prospective employers and recent developments in your field;
• Locate job listings that you may not have otherwise found; and
• Manage your online reputation.
