This presentation discusses ways to maximize personal branding by utilizing creative social media strategies that build engaging online content. In other words, you'll learn how to take skills you already have, and use them to launch your career.

With over 17 examples for creating job-worthy content, you'll be left with ideas for not only proving your social media/public relations worth but also a better understanding of what employers are and are not expecting to see from you.

Presented to a room full of soon-to-be graduates from colleges across the Southeast @ the PRSSA's Regional Activity Conference in Hattiesburg, Mississippi on April 10, 2010. The conference was titled “Navigating Social Media: PeRsonal to Professional.”
