Students Participate in Social Media and Branding Workshop, Take a Look!February 9, 2016
Last week, Greg George – Sr. Manager, Social Media Management and Alliances & Partnerships at Monster.ca, visited AAPS to lead the “Social Media and Job Search: A Personal Branding” Workshop.
The session went over virtually every social channel available, explaining the ways each specific platform is useful and how they can be strategically leveraged to improve a job search. Specifically, students learned how to use their own social media to better position themselves as candidates, but also how to engage with prospective employers on social media to improve their job search. Furthermore, Greg explained the DOs and DONTs of a resume and provided interesting insights from a recruiter’s perspective.
Overall, the workshop was a great success. The session facilitated meaningful Q&A, and surely underlined how important it is to stay current with online and social media trends now and in the future.
Thank you to Greg George and all the students who participated. For more information about other workshops being offered by AAPS, click here.
