2010 Black Issues Conference

UT Libraries Diversity Committee joins the 5th Annual Black Issues Conference with Making a Good Virtual First Impression: Using Google Sites to Get a Job, Saturday February 6, 2010

Using current technologies can instill excellent leadership practices that can bridge communication across all cultures. Using eportfolios is a cool strategy for students to establish their virtual presence. There are many options for presenting a portfolio to prospective employers; but creating your own web portfolio brings you online visibility and creates an avenue for sharing your body of work quickly and easily with the professional world. Google sites are a simple straightforward interface for creating a free professional web site. This program will provide a demonstration of the set-up of a free web site, teaching attendees how they can design a glowing custom portfolio. The attendees will learn skills that are transferable throughout the professional world as they continue to build their leadership presence.
