Building Your Professional Portfolio: Website, LinkedIn, and Social Media
Digital tools are changing the ways that we work, find jobs, and share our stories. If you are a liberal arts professional or someone who wants to develop a personal brand, this four-week blended course will help you to articulate your story and bring it to life through social media platforms, blogs, websites, and more. You’ll identify what makes you unique and choose the tools to communicate your content, style, and brand to potential employers, clients, friends, and family. Learn to seamlessly incorporate writing samples, works of art, video clips, and more into your online portfolio. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to network with classmates and receive valuable feedback.
Note: This course is BLENDED, meaning the instruction is delivered both in-person and online. The online portion for the course runs for four weeks, and the course meets twice in-person during that timeframe. Students are expected to complete both the online and in-person portions of the course.
