I’ve recently accepted an invitation to speak to a group of college students at Georgia Highlands College about using Social Media (LinkedIn in specific) to help these students find jobs after they graduate.
The presentation will be a part of Georgia Highland College’s Passport to success program – a 4 day career preparation program that gives students tips on brushing up their resumes, how to dress/prepare for job interviews, etc.
The presentation I’ll be giving to the students will be instructing them how to keep clean Social Media profiles that recruiters and HR professionals will be scouring before they decide who to interview/hire. I’ll also discuss how to use LinkedIn as an effective networking tool to reach out to recruiters and hiring managers who are looking for qualified candidates to fill positions within their organizations.
The Passport to Success fair runs from October 7-10, 2013, and I’ll be presenting at GHC’s Paulding Campus in Hiram, Georgia on October 9. I’m looking forward to fielding some great questions and to building some relationships with local college students!
