The Be Your Own Headhunter site is going through a make over (changing from TypePad to WordPress) so for the next couple of weeks I will be promoting the seminar schedule here on MN Headhunter.

I should have posted this schedule a couple of days ago so if you are unable to attend but would like the presentation slides register and you will receive them via email.

I do not yet have the schedule for next week so stop by again or add yourself to one of the following:

All presentations are 60 minutes with a Q&A that follows.

If you are a Twitter user and would like to provide immediate feedback during a presentation add #BYOH to your comments and suggestions. I will follow up with you on Twitter after the presentation.

Using Social Media For Networking, Lead Generation And Job Search

For those of us who write a blog and/or have profiles on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Ning groups we often use these site to communicate with friends, coworkers and family but until recently very few thought of them as opportunities to network, for lead generation, find jobs and consulting opportunities.

I will walk through the use of blogs, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Ning groups showing ways one can:

  • Optimize profiles with keywords, locations, etc
  • Use the site to search others
  • Join and create groups
  • Overtly and covertly say you are networking, looking for customers, jobs or consulting gigs
  • Show what you are working on and prove expertise
  • Engage in a regional, local and industry conversation
  • Connect and network prior to and after industry events
