February 2020 Professional Development Meeting

Social media for professional growth,
not just for job seekers

presented by:  Jennifer Radke, National Institute for Social Media

Tuesday, February 25, 2020, 5:00pm

 Hosted by: Protolabs, Plymouth, MN

You know that if you are in job transition then you need to update your LinkedIn profile, but did you realize that LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media platforms are also used for leadership, professional growth, sales, and so much more?

Don’t miss this introduction to how social media can bring value to your professional career.

We will talk about:

  • Choosing your goal for online conversations
  • How to make the most of your current connections
  • Finding the best new connection opportunities
  • Keeping on top of industry changes/trends

Don’t worry. We will also talk about how to do this with just 15-30 minutes a day.

We hope to see you there.
