As a bonus for registering, all students will receive an updated copy of Rozgonyi’s LinkedIn chapter featured in the best-selling book, “Success Secrets of the Social Media Marketing Superstars.”
Rozgonyi says it’s never too early to start building a personal brand and a network, “Now that LinkedIn has lowered the minimum entry age to 13 and opened up an entire new site for colleges and universities, it’s time for high school and college students to add networking to their skill set
But, it’s not your dad or mom’s networking
To be successful, Rozgonyi says, “Networking is not new, but networking in 3D is. Today, anyone at any age needs to know how to network digitally, directly and dynamically.”
The mother of three, one a college freshman, Rozgonyi says she’s offering the course for free with a request that students leave comments about what they learned. What’s in it for them? Positive self-promotion, Rozgonyi says, “Adding a review will give them visibility and they can leave a link to their LinkedIn profile, which invites new connections.”
