#5thingscareers – the presentation that I’m going to give today

I’m going to run the 5 things that careers professionals can do with social media course today. The slides are basically the same as the ones that I used last time but I’ve made a couple of tweaks.

Here they are



  1. People are a lot more informed about careers than they used to be. This is reflected in the improved standard of cv’s and university personal statements they produce. But there is one thing I find again and again that they miss. They talk about the skills they have, but are not very good about evidencing them. Sometimes this is because they are too modest, but other times it is just about beginning to learn how to present themselves.

  2. Thanks for sharing this Tristram! I found it really interesting and agree, social media is about people. It’s about the development of relationships, knowledge and understanding and I think your presentation illustrates this beautifully. I also loved your pointing out the fact that careers support blogs offer an opportunity for reflective practice which is so very important for our own growth as career practitioners.
