With most everyone using some sort of 'social site' these days, it is easy to overlook the power that these sites have on our professional lives. That power can be good or bad, depending on how you use the sites, your reasons for using the sites, and what type of information you share. In this free presentation by Rhyne Armstrong, we'll go over some ways to use sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to advance your career (or get it kick-started) and things to avoid to keep from going completely off the rails.
Rhyne Armstrong is Director of Documentation at RouteMatch Software. He has 18 years experience in the technical communication field; often moving from the core discipline of technical writing to the outlying roles of corporate communication, product marketing, and user experience design. Over the last several years, Rhyne has consulted on social media and social networking strategies for several organizations and individuals, and often dives head-first into emerging technologies and communication trends. He is a senior member of the Society for Technical Communication, serving on the Community Affairs Committee.
This joint STC/FTC meeting is free for everyone. Light refreshments will be provided for attendees.
The meeting will be taking place on the 3rd floor of the UCF Student Union in Cape Florida, which is room 316ABCD. I will have signs posted inside the building to direct you to the room. I would recommend parking in lot D1. In order to park on campus you must purchase a daily parking permit at one of the pay stations located in the parking lots and garages. Daily permits are valid on all of the "D" parking lots and unreserved garages. The pay stations accept cash (no change given) or credit card. Since the meeting takes place after 5:30 p.m., the daily parking permit will cost $3.00. Website: http://www.facebook.com/events/211341882336588/
