Is social media helping (or hurting) your job search?
Job seekers can learn to make social media work to their advantage by attending the Social Media Career Workshop – presented by the Triton College Career Services Department. The free workshop, which will be held at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 11, will show participants how to get the most out of Facebook, Twitter, blogs, LinkedIn and other popular sites, including how to develop one’s brand and build network contacts using social media and what to (and what not to) include on your resume and/or social media webpages.
Guest speakers include Mike McGuire, social media expert and Triton faculty member; Laina Krisik, a certified professional resume writer and career strategist; and Director of Triton’s Career Services Rich Williams.
The workshop will be held in Room B-210 in the Student Center (B-Building) on Triton’s River Grove campus. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (708) 456-0300, ext. 3805 or 3619 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
