Social media and Web 2.0 have become buzz words that are thrown around a lot. Many careers professionals have been convinced that they should probably be doing something with these technologies, but the question remains – what? This workshop will give participants an overview of the world of social media and examine ways in which it can be used for careers work. Participants will leave with the skills and ideas that they need to implement at least five practical uses of social media within their careers service.

The workshop will be run by Tristram Hooley (Head of the International Centre for Guidance Studies). Tristram is a committed user of social media and has run a range of practical workshops around its use. Tristram was one of the authors of the recent UKCES publication “Careering through the web” and writes the blog “Adventures in Career Development”.
