Professional Enrichment Series Continues with Program Luncheon on "Social Networking"

With so many layoffs and RIFs, learn how to build helpful contacts before you need them for a job search or career change by using your "social networks."

May 20, 2009 (FPRC) -- The YWCA Dayton, in partnership with Sinclair Community College’s Workforce Development & Corporate Services, will continue its Professional Enrichment Series (PES) in June with a luncheon program entitled: Layoffs and RIFs: OMG! It Could Be Me, How to Engage Your (Electronic) Social Network.

Social networking is fast becoming the way professionals are connecting - and connections lead to jobs and opportunities! How can you use the power of social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) to build helpful contacts before you need them for a job search or career change? What is considered social media "etiquette?"

The Professional Enrichment Series will address these networking and technological issues during lunch on June 11, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm in the Charity Early Auditorium in the Ponitz Center (Building 12) at Sinclair Community College. Tickets are $30 per person ($10 tax-deductible).

Presenter Debba Haupert has used social media to build important connections both on- and off-line. Her business,, an on-line community for women, has grown with her passion for social media. Debba has the most Twitter followers in Cincinnati and has hundreds of LinkedIn connections - so she effectively uses social media on a daily basis.

Proceeds from PES support the YWCA Dayton’s mission, programs and services, including: racial justice, domestic violence counseling and shelter; homelessness; affordable housing; childcare, teen services; self-sufficiency and personal development for women.
