Backpack to Briefcase – Sydney

22 May 2019

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Macquarie University City Campus, 123 Pitt Street

Play The Social Media Game

Social media is only for your personal life, isn’t it? Unfortunately not. Decision makers will research candidates online before they offer opportunities. If you play the social media game right, you can maximise those chances and level up your career.

But where do you start apart from deleting and untagging those ‘drunk at a party’ photos? Do you need a website or just a LinkedIn Profile? How can you be one step ahead of the competition?

Join us for this interactive workshop to get insiders’ tips and tricks on:

  • online and offline networking
  • the do’s and don’ts on social media
  • website design principles so you can build your digital archive and brand
  • making keywords do the work for you
  • digital literacy, competence and influence

Our experts, Sue Ellson and Rowena Ditzell will share their experiences in this interactive workshop and will provide a comprehensive handout with links to additional resources.

Following the workshop, you will have the opportunity to network with our guest speakers and your fellow Macquarie University alumni over canapés and a drink. One free drink will be provided, with a cash bar should you want to keep the conversation going.

Make sure you have your business cards handy and LinkedIn installed on your phone so you can make the most of your networking time using LinkedIn’s Find Nearby and Scan Code features. We also recommend you bring a fully charged laptop with you to take advantage of speakers’ expertise as we will be making live edits to your profile.

Unfortunately this event is now full and we are no longer taking registrations. 
Our next upcoming event is Backpack to Briefcase – The Challenge on Tuesday 2 July, 6pm – 9pm so keep an eye on your inbox for your invitation. We hope to see you there.
