In a world where everything is digital—Facebook, LinkedIn, online dating sites—it becomes even more important than it used to be to make sure you are marketing yourself well. Whether searching for a new job or a new love interest, the first step in the process is ensuring that you’re putting your best foot forward.

In this webinar, just in time for Valentine’s Day, Erika Ettin (MBA'09), founder of the online dating consulting company A Little Nudge and author of Love at First Site, will be sharing her Six Secrets to Writing a Successful Online Dating Profile. In addition, where applicable, she will apply many of these same concepts to the business world, showing how they can be used in a professional or networking setting.

Specifically, Erika will be focusing on the following items:
Your online presence and ensuring everyone knows the appropriate photos to use (and not to use)
Pointers for the profile itself (online dating, LinkedIn, or otherwise) in terms of both length and content
Appropriate emailing techniques
The actual in-person meeting
