They’re hiring teams of content strategists, creating social media war rooms, and even using automated content creation and curation platforms to feed the beast and improve their reach and engagement metrics. But how much of this activity actually serves a brand’s business goals? Or truly engages consumers?

  • Christine Raetsch, Head of People, Duolingo & WELD Pittsburgh Chapter Impact Manager
Kyshira and Christine will share insights to help you shatter your glass ceiling with specific focus on:
  • Key elements of an effective personal brand;
  • How to make yourself visible to potential clients and recruiters;
  • Do’s and Don’ts for social media platforms such as LinkedIn; and
  • Practical tips you can use right away to position yourself for the top job.
