Harnessing Social Media to Maximize Your Professional Presence

Wing Butler

This free workshop is an easy to follow, high-energy guide for sign language interpreters that will get participants excited to responsibly venture into social media.  Wing gives instruction on how to harness the power of social media to build your professional presence online. He makes the case that everyone needs a personal brand as the business environment has changed. Among other observations, he notes that the day of the traditional word-of-mouth reputation building is ending, and that even if you are not going to venture out on your own, you need to have a strong online brand if you want to get hired.
