Digital Life Skills for Teens & Young Adults, November 7, 2015, at Gangplank Chandler

You would be hard-pressed to find a teen that isn’t on social media. It’s all fun and games when they begin using it, but did you know there’s another step? When teens enter their upper-class years in High School and early college, how they present themselves online could be the difference in getting an internship or job.

8571247015_b60b0feb92It’s a great time to begin separating the personal from the public, and this event will show you how. We will discuss about how your brain reacts to social media and the science behind it.

Dani Cutler, digital content creator, will also discuss ways to keep public and personal items online separate, and why now is a good time to think about setting up a more professional profile with LinkedIn.

Ruth Carter, attorney who specializes in social media law will discuss privacy online, safety, and the legalities about social media and what potential employers ask for and seek out on their own.

The presentations will be in discussion-format, and there will be time at the end of the event for Q & A. This event is geared toward juniors and seniors in high school and freshman in college, but all teens and their parents are welcome. Join us!
