About this event

Join GA as we bring together a panel of experts discussing the current state of the job search process. In today's world, leveraging technology and building your personal brand are instrumental in helping you land a job.

There once was a time when job hunting meant going through a newspaper and circling interesting job listings. Things have certainly changed since then.

Today, there's a variety of tools for companies to identify and evaluate (aka sleuthing) candidates. Yes, LinkedIn is part of the equation, but there’s a variety of other options and methods that recruiters use to find the best talent out there.

Another key aspect in today’s digital age is personal branding. A few years ago we worked hard to keep our social media accounts off the radar of potential employers (hide all of the incriminating keg party photos!). Now having an online presence is a crucial part of the process.

What You’ll Take Away:
Gain insight and inspiration from experts working in the hiring industry in Boston and hear first-hand how technology is transforming their work. You will also learn tips for building and optimizing your online presence through LinkedIn and other online avenues which will help you build your personal brand and land that dream job.
