October 18th Topic:
Digital Portfolios & Professional Blogs
Presenters: Jennifer Weggeman, WorkNet DuPage and Paul Cameron, President of DriveStaff and Founder of SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com
Jennifer and Paul will lead a discussion about Digital Portfolios and how to optimize them to help more employers find you. They will discuss different places to post a digital portfolio, what should be on it, and what shouldn't be on it. They will also talk about professional blogs and other resources to create a following. This will be an open discussion format so you can ask questions, offer suggestions about what you've seen to be successful for others, and it will create opportunities for you to strengthen your network as you work with other attendees to identify and develop strategies to showcase individual skills and experiences.
