1. Who is this course aimed at ?
Anyone who is keen to understand the fuss around social media and what it can do for your career. The ideal profile would be a working executive who wants to tap into the power of online networks and digital personal branding. This is an introductory course but there are bound to be insights for intermediate users as well.
2. I am on a career break right now will this still be useful for me ?
Absolutely ! Infact it is crucial that you take this course so as to keep your visibility and profile up even on a career break. If you are anticipating a break even then you should take the course.
3. I don't like or understand twitter, why are you so excited about it ? I believe Twitter is for breakfast photos !
You are not alone in feeling this way but I can assure you that the return on investment on the time spent on twitter can be quite high. I am not pushing one platform over another but rather helping you make an informed choice about the pro/cons of the different platforms.
4. I don't have time for social media, this seems like one more item on my to do list !
We all are leading super busy lives with kids and other commitments that take a lot from us even outside work. However by saying you don't have time for social media is like saying i don't have time for my career ! Let me walk you through some tools that will fit into your schedule and let you engage with social media on the go.
5. Ok, what is the time commitment like for this course ?
We will be meeting for one hour every week online. If you can't make the recording, that is fine, we will email you a link to the recording and the worksheets. Ideally you should budget about 30 min between calls to start sharpening your social media skills. This is a practice oriented course and you will get out of it as much as you put into it. So roughly 90 min per week.
6. What if I have questions ?
You can always email me during the course modules and also in week 5 we will do a google hangout where you can ask any questions you may have live during the call or send them to me in advance.
7. Do you do one on one coaching as well ?
Yes, although it is far more cost effective for you to do this course first and then consider that option.
8. When will this course be offered again ?
Not sure, and even if it is then it will likely be only as a recording and at a different price point.
9. How does this impact my ability to find a job ?
Like most things in life, it takes investment in social media before it yields results. However you will be head and shoulders above the people who are not leveraging this network. With the right attitude and branding your chances of finding roles that matter & connections with potential employers only getting better.
10. Who can I email for further details ?
