    Did you know that Instagram and Pinterest can aid students in connecting with career opportunities? Do you want to know how you can help develop your students’ personal branding using social media? Are you familiar with the ways in which employers and recruiters use Instagram and Pinterest?

    Join Shannon Kelly, author of “The Career Counselor’s Guide to Pinterest and the Job Search,” to learn how students can leverage Pinterest and Instagram in their professional endeavors. These visual networks provide students a unique opportunity to learn about and connect with employers, especially in the creative design and communication industries. Participants will learn about the industries predominately found on Pinterest and Instagram, and how organizations leverage the networks to recruit. As part of a broad online strategy, Pinterest and Instagram offer students a means to showcase their skills and experiences through images to get noticed by employers. Learn how to discuss the visual element of an online strategy with students and how these platforms interact with Facebook and Twitter.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Demonstrate knowledge of key industries that use Pinterest and Instagram as part of social recruiting practices.
    • Assist students in development of a personal branding strategy through images-based networks.
    • Navigate Pinterest and Instagram to identify organizations as part of a student’s job and/or internship search.

    How You Will Learn
    During this one-hour webinar, the presenter will deliver a synchronized audio and PowerPoint presentation. Participants will have time for live Q&A throughout the program and may be asked to contribute opinions or feedback via live chat, virtual polling, and other mechanisms.
