Empowering Your Technical Career with Social Media
Kellyn Pot' Vin-Gorman, Oracle Corporation &
Jeff Smith, Oracle Corporation
Social Media and creating a personal brand is something techies are hearing about every day, but how can it really empower your career? Building a personal brand identifies us as unique in the vast and bustling world of the internet and connects us with our network on a different level than traditional means such as email or via user groups. Social media can create networking opportunities, sharing of technical knowledge, even mentoring and sponsorship in the technical world you might not have otherwise. Leveraging these channels in the professional world provides us an opportunity to be genuine and reveal a little more about the company you work for, your personal brand, and yourself. Join Oracle’s SQL Developer Product Manager, Jeff Smith, (@thatjeffsmith) and Enterprise Manager’s Consulting Member of the Technical Staff, Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman, (@DBAKevlar) as they share their journey and insights into why social media and having a personal brand are important to techies and the value it provides to the companies they work for.
