    First Monday of The Month
    Job Forum Presentation
    :


    Job Search Strategy Online and Offline...

    with Laura M. Labovich

    For Serious Job Seekers Only, only 20 seats available, business cards and/or resumes recommended.





    About The Presentation:
    Social Media for Job Seekers!

    We've had an abundance of requests for this session and are excited to deliver! In fact, Laura just delivered the core this very same presentation as the keynote speaker for Georgetown University's MBA Professional Development Series, to rave reviews.

    This is a roundtable session where you can discuss:

    - Why it's important to be "google-able" and how to raise your rank when you're not.

    - How social media can give you access to the "hidden job market."

    - What red flags you need to be aware of on Facebook, LinkedIn and twitter (especially important for those of you who fiercely guard your privacy!)

    - Q & A!  (Yep, ask Laura any question about social media and she'll be happy to answer it)
