You Are What You Tweet

Would you like your students to clean up their social media profiles?
Do you cringe when you read their posts?

Are they sharing way more than they should?

Social media has changed the way we interact. Unfortunately, many students are posting ALL their activities in what looks like a race to the bottom.

To weed through large pools of job applicants, employers look at social media profiles first and eliminate the ones who don’t exercise discretion. That photo of a keg stand can come back to haunt someone!

Elaine will open your students’ eyes as they learn that their privacy settings will not prevent people from gaining access to their profiles. Even Snapchat does not permanently go away!

Your students will develop an understanding of the psychological effects of social media and develop sensitivity to reduce bullying, depression, and anxiety of others.
Participants will be engaged and entertained through examples of positive posts and the ones that will ruin your students’ reputations. They learn the importance of their digital footprint which essentially becomes their resume.

Most importantly your students will learn essential skills to create positive profiles, reflecting their career aspirations, interests, brands, and values. Many have stated after the program that they needed to clean up their profile. Administrators have said it as well!

Two programs are offered, one that is customized for student athletes and the other for the general student population. Elaine will include posts that are specific to your campus.
