*Sign up by July 6th with the code July6 and save $15!*

Due to the popularity of our class From Hashtag to Hired: Use Social Media to Land a Job, we've decided to break it down into three sections and go deeper into the most important subjects:

  • Blogging/Personal Websites
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn

Classes consist of 30 - 45 minutes on presentations by the teacher, with the rest of the time for application of what you've learned and Q&A.


If you'd like to sign up for an individual course, you can do that, too!


You must bring a laptop/iPad/device so you can update your profiles during the class.
