“I have attended many of the workshops at the Ferndale Career Center and one that I thought to be very important and useful was the “Social Media and Career Success” workshop. I would recommend it to anyone serious about searching for work in this challenging job market.

“Over the past several weeks I have had the privilege of participating in various career search seminars conducted by Heather at the Ferndale Career Center. Heather consistently demonstrates a deep understanding of the current practices in career development, including the innovative use of social/business sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook as well as branding, resume development and networking. Even more remarkable is Heather's consistent enthusiasm and ability to draw out even the most challenged career seeker and create in them an understanding of their own self worth and how these tools can benefit them.”

“I am commenting specifically about the social networking and employment trends that were discussed at the Ferndale Career Center. These workshops, facilitated by Heather Coleman and her staff, are essential to the job seeker in today's market. Heather showed us how to utilize our Linkedin accounts for job searches and connect with people in our networks at target companies. She showed us how to utilize twitter and facebook to create a professional online presence that can be easily found by recruiters and employers, and promote our name, ideas, and qualifications for all to see. Since taking the workshops, I've doubled my Linkedin network, connected others to potential job opportunities, and have found a new job through my Linked-In connections. Now, everyone I meet becomes a contact in my Linkedin Network. ALL JOB HUNTERS needs to take this workshop with Heather Coleman at Ferndale Career Center, and TAKE ACTION by starting to build a Linkedin, Facebook, and Twitter network asap.” July 27, 2009 | Jeffrey Z.
