Ten2Two North Herts and Beds delivered a hugely successful Social Media Workshop at the recently renovated Hitchin Town Hall yesterday evening. Twenty members joined us to find out how to set up a Linkedin profile, and use it, along with Facebook and Twitter, to seek job opportunities, and to provide themselves with a digital personality for employers to find out more about them.

The digital world is most definitely here to stay and it is well known that many employers will use the various social media platforms to complement information provided in a CV, to help them determine what type of person you are and whether you would fit in with the ethos of an organisation. Ensuring that your online presence is an accurate representation of you as a person is as important as your CV these days, and whether you like it or not, it is necessary to join in. Our members who came along yesterday, left the 90 minutes workshop with some additional hints and tips about how to ensure that employers see you for the true professional you are and how you could add value to their business if they employ you.

Ten2Two North Herts and Beds, offer a variety of free workshops for members throughout the year, focusing on different, but equally important, topics to assist you with your job search. Keep an eye out for our emails or newsletters for details of future workshops on CV Writing, Interview Skills, Returning to Work, and events such as our ever popular Getting to Know You sessions.
