Presented by Xing Smoothies, Brand Me enables students to explore the benefits and pitfalls of social media including aspects of personal branding, reputation and self-promotion. It teaches pupils how to harness the power of the internet to gain advantages over the competition and help secure job or new business opportunities.
The day explores:
Employability and CV writing: Using experience of hiring staff for Xing’s three different businesses, the workshop will look at how students can improve their CV’s from an employer’s perspective, aiming to make students more desirable applicants for any jobs they apply for.
Time management Be it an hour, a day, a month or a year, a good use of time helps students improve their employability in our increasingly competitive world.
Goal setting: The students will write letters to themselves to establish goals. The letter is posted back within a certain time frame.
Students will be given a tailor made workbook to make notes and carry out exercises during each session. This should be kept by the students to help support their future career path.
