The Social Media Effect

Event providers: Stockport College

Social media is now a norm for finding jobs and progressing in a career. But how many young people know about the digital footprint they create and what may come back to haunt them?

In this session we’ll explore a range of social media platforms, and students will understand the importance of effectively managing their social media and keeping safe! We touch upon the influence of social media content on employers’ decision-making towards candidates applying for jobs. Furthermore, the session provides IAG on how to create a positive and professional social media profile.

Session 1 – up to an hour

Session 2 – 30 mins. Learners create their Linkedin profiles. Computer suite required (only available for post 16)

GM Higher will need to record participation of learners in line with our funding requirements, so we will ask you to provide a register.
