The first day of college is the first day of your career! An In-School and In-College focused workshop “Social Media and The Working World with LinkedIn and Twitter”. This is where students will learn about LinkedIn and Twitter. They will practice social media skills so that they can use them to leverage future professional success and start their “Twitter and LinkedIn life” on the right path!
LinkedIn is a powerful tool and will help students prepare for the next exciting chapter of their lives. It will help them to build a professional network and get a good feel of what their dream role is truly about. They can even use it to find their first job.
They will learn how to tap into the power of LinkedIn to locate industry insights, internships, jobs, and valuable connections. In this workshop, we will walk through how to build a stellar LinkedIn profile – no work experience necessary. Tips for building their LinkedIn network, identifying job opportunities, connecting with recruiters, and showing enthusiasm by sharing and commenting on content that is relevant to their dream role.
Twitter is the second most popular social media platform and is a great networking tool. An active Twitter presence will give students opportunities to interact with people they would never have a chance to talk to otherwise. Some of those people might even become future employers or business contacts. Companies and professionals engage on Twitter especially when it comes to industry events and seminars. People on Twitter are looking for what’s new, for great content and stories from other people, businesses and brands which they are interested in.
