Spring Business Academy to Feature Social Networking
To Friend or not to Friend? How do I use social networking? Do I even want to? How do I keep up with it? How do I control it, so it doesn't control me? What's the next big thing?
These questions and many more will be answered when the Chamber presents "Social Networking - A Goldmine or Landmine" at the Spring Business Academy on March 31.
Presenters Karen Gieselman and George Reeves of Fisher & Phillips, LLP will guide participants through the lingo of the connecting technology known as social networking. They will also offer legal perspectives on its use for recruiting and screening, as well as tips on how to manage these tools within an organization.
