In Work and Culture Online Theme 2 you will spend time learning how to make your LinkedIn profile work for you and how to use Twitter to connect with people for work. You will also narrow down your online searches to make sure you are getting to targeted work that focuses on those competencies and skills that transfer from one industry to another.

There are tips on how to check your sources to make sure the advice you are receiving is going to help you, and timelines to show you how long it will take to make a good living depending on the job/study career path you choose.
