In celebration of the month of the Feasts of Saint Vincent de Paul and Blessed Frederic Ozanam, the youth portfolio hosted a professional branding and CV development workshop focusing on the effective use of LinkedIn. The event was facilitated by SA youth coordinator, Boipelo Mathodlana and presented by Tana Storani, who is a LinkedIn expert and international career & brand strategist.
The workshop focused primarily on people who consider themselves a professional (or aspiring professional) who would like to advance in their career or are considering a career-path change; interested in accessing or leveraging international career opportunities or people looking to develop and establish their LinkedIn personal brand.
The workshop was attended by SSVP youth from Angola, Brazil, Kenya, Liberia, India, South Africa and Nigeria. One of the main takeaway themes from the workshop was a call to action for our youth to use platforms such as LinkedIn as a networking tool to showcase the best version of themselves and their experiences and ultimately to make it a stepping stone to reach their professional aspirations.
