At a time when employers are focusing on the Internet, you need to be on top of your digital branding. Make sure your social media platforms are looking snazzy before you go out and “rep” yourself. Join the AU Social Media for Prep Yourself Before You Rep Yourself!
Prep Youself Before You Rep Yourself is AU SMC’s feature event for Social Media Week 2012 (@SMWWDC). We’ll have 4 stations devoted to help students digitally brand themselves. By the end of the event, we want students to leave the event feeling more prepared than when they walked in the door.
The first 20 people to arrive will get free head shots from campus photographer Cedric Terrell (@CedricTerrell). Cedric’s headshots are amazing so you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity. Check out his work on his website. We’ll also have the expertise of Kogod Center for Career Development (@theKCCD) on site.
If you’ve been on Facebook recently, you’ve probably noticed people using the Washington Post Social Reader. The digital team that created the app, WaPo Labs is going to visit AU on February 6th to discuss digital shifts in journalism. How is the journalism industry changing? What are the challenges it faces? What is the future of news? Why do students want to be a part of it? What is Labs doing to meet these challenges?
Come out on February 6th at 7:00 p.m. in MGC 203 to have all these questions answered and more!
