Whether you know it or not, you have a personal brand. As you read this, it’s telling the world what you represent – via Tweets, emails, and even your t–shirt.
It’s not just businesses that have to position their profiles in our digital world. Forget Coke vs. Pepsi, this is Adam vs. Meaghan. Prospective employers DO review your social profiles, and your personal brand can make or break whether you land that new job or get the promotion.
So how do you build it? Take this career–focused workshop and learn strategies to achieve the following:

  • How to make a lasting first impression
  • How to shape up your social media profiles
  • How to sell yourself in 30 seconds or less
  • How to look and act the part for the job you want

Free Online Web Accessibility Auditing Module

There is an increasing demand within many businesses for web accessibility auditing expertise, but there is a shortage of necessary knowledge and skills. Professional Web Accessibility Auditing Made Easy – a new module developed by Digital Education Strategies (DES) at Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education, in partnership with the Government of Ontario’s EnAbling Change Program – will help you or your staff quickly develop the knowledge, skills, and practical experience needed to effectively manage your organization’s web accessibility compliance efforts. This offering is The Chang School's first massive open online course (MOOC).

The module will provide an opportunity to create a custom toolkit that will assist with auditing or assessing your website’s accessibility, and to develop business processes that ensure accessibility is maintained in the long-term as a natural part of everyday business activities.

This intensive three-week, free, open online module will be offered through the Canvas Network beginning in January 2016. Visit Professional Web Accessibility Auditing Made Easy for more information and to register.
