Social Media, Digital Footprints, Reputations and Job Searches

Below are two presentations i delivered in the past on social media.

The first workshop was presented at a meeting of the Crossroads Career Network at CrossPoint Church in Duluth, Georgia on the topic of Social Media, Brand Management, and your Job Search. The second was presented at Brookwood High School, ranked one of America’s Best High Schools by Newsweek in 2012, and is entitled Using Social Media to Enhance Your Job Search. While there is overlap of material, the presentation at CrossPoint is geared for professionals coming from a faith-based background, and the Brookwood presentation is shorter, more entertaining and oriented towards young people from all walks of life.

Note the original presentations contained embedded videos which are lost when the presentations are digitized for the web.
