One of my favorite things to do is speak in public about the real world applications of new media and social media, so I am very excited about sharing the stage at tonight’s meeting of the Social Media Club of Southwest Florida.
Tonight’s focus is on how both employers and prospective employees can use all the social media tools at their disposal for a mutually beneficial job search. Lori Burke, the Director of HR at Neighborhood America, will speak from the perspective of the employer and how they use social media in hiring.
I will be offering some tips to job seekers about burnishing their reputations online, and some of the pitfalls to avoid in our “always on” world. The meeting is at Florida Gulf Coast University and I am told that there will be lots of undergrads and recent grads in the audience, so I am doubly excited.
