On 29th March, the LoggedOn project group held a 1 hour careers workshop for their fellow students. During the hour, they explored digital employability online, including discussing techniques students could use to seek work in one of three different industry areas/sectors: Creative, Academic and Technical. The project team and workshops participants shared tips on using networking sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to build on online portfolio to showcase their work to potential employers. The group also produced a website, which you can find at http://digitalleadersemployability.coventry.domains/
Did you know it’s possible to remotely turn your computer’s webcam without you noticing? Our Digital Leaders do and they want to help you keep your privacy – so they’ve produced some great stickers you can place over your webcam. Look out for their stall in The Hub in May – you could get a free webcam sticker and more information on keeping safe online.
This project is all about branding for those working, or who want to work, in creative industries. In May, the group will be hosting a guest speaker to talk about how they have built their brand to achieve success in their industry. This will be followed with a workshop to enable participants to get to know and build their personal brand. The workshop will be supported by a website full of articles with top tips for successful branding.
