Developing pathways to connectedness essentially commences with family and friends, but over time new connections outside of these circles begin to form ever increasing and interlinking circles. These informal and formal networks have the potential to help you unlock new doors to new opportunities. Social media can without doubt provide excellent communication channels and a space to develop your network of connections.  Nonetheless as your online presence expands it leaves behind both digital footprints and digital shadows; and this needs to be given due consideration. This keynote will look at the value of developing a professional online presence and why as future graduates you need to take ownership of this.
