Social Networking for Professionals 101 and 201

I am pleased to announce that the Chamber and C-TEC have partnered to provide some social networking seminars being held at C-TEC. The only problem, which is also a positive, is the limited seats available - only 30 per class! We are giving Chamber Members first chance to reserve your seat prior to this being released to the public. You only have until FRIDAY, APRIL 10th for this early bird registration. The instructor is Angela Siefer, founder of Shiny Door, a Columbus-based company specializing in social networking consulting.

Social Networking for Professionals 101 will be offered on April 21, May 5 and May 19 at two different times: 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. or 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. This is a six hour class, two hours each session. You must attend all three days during the same time periods. It is a hands-on class easing non-users of social networking into professional use of LinkedIn and Facebook. Students will discover how to begin growing and promoting their businesses, expanding their network and promoting themselves.

Students will also learn the purpose of social networks, and the structures of LinkedIn and Facebook. They'll learn to: create a professional online business representation; generate warm leads; build a strong network and integrate online and offline networking.

Social Networking for Professionals 201 will be offered on May 1, May 15 and May 29 from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. This seminar will guide current users of social networking tools into strategic use of LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Plaxo.

The price for these seminars is $72.00 for the six hour course.

To register, please contact Marci Toomey at 740.364.2261 or mtoomey@c-tec.edu
