Jobs Driven Networking Group
October 18th Topic: Digital Portfolios & Professional Blogs
Presenter: Jennifer Weggeman, WorkNet DuPage and Paul Cameron, President of DriveStaff and Founder of SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com
Jennifer and Paul will lead a discussion about Digital Portfolios and how to optimize them to help more employers find you. They will discuss different places to post a digital portfolio, what should be on it, and what shouldn't be on it. They will also talk about professional blogs and other resources to create a following. This will be an open discussion format so you can ask questions, offer suggestions about what you've seen to be successful for others, and it will create opportunities for you to strengthen your network as you work with other attendees to identify and develop strategies to showcase individual skills and experiences.

Digital Headshots for LinkedIn, Business Cards, & more!
Want a professional headshot, but can't justify $100+ to get one?
Does a $40 donation to a charitable organization sound better?
Wheaton Lodge 269 donates time and money to local food pantries, sponsors the Wheaton North HS academic teams, packs meals for shelters, but generates virtually no income for themselves. So, we will be taking digital headshots for social media profiles, including a free, 6-page Proactive LinkedIn Strategy Guide, and business card template to use your headshot on a Vista Print business card, all for $40 immediately after our meeting.
They will only be taking pictures from 1pm to 2pm, so please indicate on your RSVP if you want one. Thank you!
Sponsors: SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com, DriveStaff & Wheaton Masonic Lodge 269.
A repository of all JDNG presentations are currently available in the JDNG Archive for members of SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com, backed by more than 350 recruiting firms across the United States, and more than 100 people like you have written testimonials about the training.
What are my parking options?
There is a free (but small) parking lot connected to the building, free parking on the street, and a very large parking garage with 300 free parking spots one block West on Wesley St.
If the Mason parking lot is full (it usually is), then exit the lot, take a left, go to the next block and take a left to the lot. The arrows below animate this exciting journey to the big parking garage.
It's 3-minute walk away, a 5-minute stroll, and 10-minute meander. Go at your own pace. See you Thursday!
