The upcoming Social Media Monday webshop focuses on the career transition, especially for AmeriCorps VISTAs.
Monday May 24th at noon Pacific, 3 pm Eastern, you can hop online and on the phone for a free web presentation featuring tools for your transition from VISTA.
Social Media Monday webshops (web-based workshops) are “virtual workshops for social change.” Monday’s webshop will focus on:
- Plaxo, an online contact management and social networking tool that can help you stay in touch with the folks you work with currently as a VISTA, as you move onto your next steps — one of the most valuable, long-term effects of VISTA in your career and life will be the friendships and professional connections you’ve made this year. Plaxo isn’t just another e-rolodex, however. The contacts in your Plaxo network update their own information as they move along in their lives and careers — so you don’t have to. Plaxo also allows you to get all your social network updates in one place.
- Idealist.org, my organization — yes, our site is useful for searching for jobs (and nonprofits) — but we’ve also worked hard to pack the site full of useful, free information for your career transition including guide books for national service members, first-time job seekers, and mid-career sector switchers; a resource center for public service professionals thinking about grad school; and more. I’ll be sharing these resources and others on Monday’s call.
