You are invited to a 1-hour long workshop where we are going to speak about professional networking and personal branding while exploring LinkedIn as the central and most prominent social platform in times of forced isolation. We will discuss the main players on this virtual stage, their motivations and how you can manage this online tool to your benefit to increase your visibility on the job market.

Learning Objectives:

  • In this workshop, project management professionals will learn how to manage their online persona. What is your page telling about you?
