Happy Hour Tune Ups

You are not your resume. You are your work.

Tuesdays Are For Tuning Up Your Business Assets

Why shouldn’t it be your happy hour?

You blink and it’s 2021. Is your bio updated? Is your portfolio ready? Do you still need a logo? How’s your reel? What does your LinkedIn look like?

How well does your reel present you, your work, and your potential? Are you struggling with not having “enough” footage, or deciding what to use? If you’re a writer, director, filmmaker, performer, etc., this workshop will help you create an engaging reel to get you noticed. (Approximately 60 minutes, with instructor, Alex Griffin).

Writing an Engaging Bio

Tuesday, November 10th, 2020, 8PM EST via Zoom

You’re looking for a job, but no one seems to be looking at you? You know where you want to go and it’s not where you are?  You can talk up everyone else, but not yourself?  Start refreshing your assets for 2021 with this first workshop in our “Happy Hour Tune Up” series.  Learn to write a short engaging bio that moves your forward to where you want to be, not necessarily where others see you. Let’s move out of 2020 together. (Approximately 45 minutes, with instructor, Jean Marie Keevins).

Workshop Fee FREE (You will be sent to a registration survey, rather than the shopping cart for this event only).

Using LinkedIn Strategically

Tuesday, November 17th, 2020, 8PM EST via Zoom

If you are a job seeker, you know you are supposed to use LinkedIn. You’ve had a profile for years and never knew what to do with it. You want a profile that will work to your advantage and you want to know why LinkedIn is the job search tool of choice.
