This session illustrates ways that you can use social media to explore, attract and connect with colleges in a positive way. Learn how to create an online presence that allows schools to see your strengths and attributes.

Even if you are not college bound, this session offers practical tools for building a social media presence that is invaluable to your job search and life.
