On November 20, 2013, Public Works Partners and Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow teamed up for an exciting and well-received presentation on social media for workforce development at the 2013 NYATEP Fall Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY. Public Works covered a wide range of practical advice on how to setup and use social media to effectively engage participants, and OBT spoke from their extensive experience on how their entire organization has oriented itself towards social media, starting with MySpace back in the mid-2000’s!
If you weren’t able to join us in Saratoga Springs, you can download our presentation, Quick Tip Sheet, and Facebook Tool Comparison (link hosted on our site). Also, over the coming weeks, we’ll share portions of our presentation on this blog, with additional context and details that you won’t find in the deck itself.
In the meantime, we hope to continue the great conversation that began at our workshop. Connect with us on Twitter (#socialwkdev, @PublicWorksIQ, @OBTJobs), leave a comment on this blog post, or email us to share best practices, ask questions, and learn how we can help your program utilize social media to connect with participants and improve outcomes.
