It's great to see you on here! I also submitted a proposal about creating a social media strategy to build your library brand. Eager to see your presentation! -Natalie
You're exactly perfect for this type of conference, Natalie. I look forwarding to learning from you about the social media branding, very topical and important. After the conference, I hope I can add your slides to the Careers in Federal Libraries group. Please post there about your presentation which sounds great for job seekers. Nice to hear from you again!
Thanks Nancy! You're more than welcome to add my slides to the Careers in Federal Libraries group! My presentation is mainly geared towards helping libraries build their library brand, but it could definitely be adapted to building your own professional brand!
When is this tour happening, please? Betsy Aldridge
Hey there, Betsy! Sorry for the delay in responding. We're getting ready for the government shutdown which does look like it's happening. The presentation is Friday, Oct 18 at 6 pm eastern.
