Anybody can spin up a social media account, but using it strategically is another beast. There's a lot of power in social, it's democratized the design industry and frees designers from being tied to a specific location just to be seen. Curating the right content can super boost your career outside of the 9-5.
Join us for a panel on using social media to promote yourself, find new opportunities, and stay sane in the process. We'll discuss the in's and out's of navigating Instagram, LinkedIn, and perhaps a few lesser known platforms.
Whether it's sharing your side hustle or just making new design friends, you'll walk away with the tools to reach your personal goals online.
