Downer's Grove, IL (PRWEB) August 03, 2012
Acacia HR Solutions in partnership with Social Buzz Concepts will be launching Discovering Social Workshops aimed at helping social media beginners understand and utilize the tools in their daily lives.
In this interactive day and a half workshop, participants will learn about various social media platforms broken up into three main sessions. These sessions will cover the most popular sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and Google+. Their learning will include key components of each platform, how to build a profile and how to interact with others. At the end of each session, attendees will get hands on experience using each site. Coaches will be present to help individuals who may need one-on- one assistance.
These workshops will be held at various times throughout the year and will focus on different target audiences each time. A workshop will be held September 25-26, 2012 at DeVry University in Downers Grove, IL. This workshop will focus on job seekers and how they can use social media in their job search.
In addition to learning about and getting hands-on experience using the tools, job seekers will also have the opportunity to have their resumes reviewed by industry experts. A professional photographer will be on hand for any attendee needing a headshot to use in their online profiles.
"Social media has changed the way we connect and interact with recruiters and companies. It is an essential component of any job search strategy," says Susan Avello, Principle at Social Buzz Concepts.
