Are you aware of all of the ways in which social media can help – or hinder – you in your career options? Are you missing out on useful information about courses, job opportunities and cutting-edge developments in areas of interest? Many of you will be using social media already, but may not have thought about it in these terms.
Pauline Tait – the School’s Careers & Employability Adviser – has kindly agreed to run a session that will introduce effective strategies for using Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to support your academic and career activities. Discuss how to network using these tools…and what pitfalls to avoid!
Maaike Veencamp – a Lincoln-based Senior Community Organiser – will also speak at the event. She will be introducing three trainee community organiser positions that are currently available and, from the recruiter’s perspective, will share examples of where an applicant’s social media presence has influenced how their application is viewed.
The workshop will run from 5.30pm to 6.30pm on Monday 17th March in the Coach Education Suite, and all are welcome!
