BayBrazil & partner German-American Business Association present:
Over the past two years, use of social media has grown dramatically. Today tools such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are used heavily for professional networking, inter-company communications and career development, job search – as well as for social connections. These tools can be a great way to develop, communicate and promote yourself for long term career success. But as we have seen recently with WikiLeaks and many other ‘high profile cases’ there can be challenges and issues when using social media.
The ease and predominant use of social media can lead to privacy breaches, negative impact on personal and business reputation and relationships or even more severe consequences.
Our event will provide employees, managers, business owners, job seekers and consultants with guidelines, ideas and approaches they can put to use immediately to avoid the threats while benefiting from use of social media.
