In this workshop we will help the partners of expats to be more effective online. We will talk about job hunting, job marketing and other opportunities via LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. It can help to familiarize with a vacancy or potential employer. We will also help them to find interesting people online with who they wouldn’t normally come into contact.
Social media can enhance career opportunities in different ways. In the current job market it’s crucial to be visible online. You want recruiters and/or searchers to be able to find you.
