New Online Course Gives Students LinkedIn and Networking Know How


college-success-networking-linkedinToday I'm excited to share this press release about my new personal branding, networking and LinkedIn course for high school and college students.

New Online Course Gives Students LinkedIn and Networking Know How

Get Linked Into College Success and Beyond," a new online course that teaches personal branding, networking and LinkedIn success skills. Affordably priced at $24, the course is available on Udemy.com at http://budurl.com/collegesuccess.

Created by Barbara Rozgonyi, a national expert on PR [personality + reputation], the course is based on her experience as a college mom, a corporate trainer, and a strategic communications consultant.

As a bonus for registering, all students will receive an updated copy of Rozgonyi’s LinkedIn chapter featured in the best-selling book, “Success Secrets of the Social Media Marketing Superstars.”

Rozgonyi says it’s never too early to start positioning a personal brand and building a network, “Now that LinkedIn has lowered the minimum entry age to 13 and opened up an entire new site for colleges and universities, it’s time for high school and college students to add branding and networking to their skills set."

But, it’s not your dad or mom’s networking.

To be successful, Rozgonyi says, “Networking is not new, but networking in 3D is. Today, anyone at any age needs to know how to network digitally, directly and dynamically. This course teaches students how to stand out when they start out, especially on LinkedIn."

Rozgonyi leads CoryWest Media, a strategic marketing consultancy that creates business for business and motivates accelerated action in organizations of all shapes and sizes. As publisher of http://wiredPRworks.com, Rozgonyi was recently selected as one of two U.S. reporters to cover Social Media Week in Berlin for Nokia.
