Keep it to Yourself: Controlling your Social Media
Wednesday, July 15 - 1 pm via Zoom
Social Media has become the new town hall with news articles, opinions, and, best of all, updates and photos from family and friends. In this workshop, we will talk about privacy settings, appropriate postings, and determine “what's what” on various platforms. We will place a focus on Facebook, the "granddaddy" of these outlets, with ways to find the right privacy settings for you, and keep your name, updates and information shared with only the people you choose. REGISTER ONLINE for the Zoom link.
Promoting Yourself: Creating a LinkedIn Profile
Wednesday, August 19 - 1 pm via Zoom
LinkedIn is the professional platform that hiring managers scope out most often. Join us for this workshop to learn how to set up a new profile, or reboot your existing profile, to experience the best professional results. Be prepared for the workshop by having access to a digital profile photo—this will add the final touch to effectively communicate your business image. REGISTER ONLINE for the Zoom link.
