Gibbons Digital Gets the Women in Tech Social Media Savvy

To get 2013 off to a 21st Century start, Bridget Gibbons, CEO of Gibbons Digital, is presenting to our Women in Tech program on the ins and outs of taking the process of networking and job searching to the next level using social media. Gibbons will be on-site January 9 at our Bronx location.

Gibbons will coach on how to leverage tools like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube and blogs to develop a career-focused networking strategy.
