On Tuesday, March 31, 2015, SHRM@QU hosted a workshop for members with Prof. McKee. Prof. McKee hosted an interactive workshop on tips and techniques for managing digital information and virtual profiles. Members discussed their experiences with their social media accounts and discussed ways HR departments can use social media and the web to access information. Prof. McKee discussed the current legal issues surrounding the use of digital information, particularly in hiring situations, and as it relates to bias. She also have them tips for creating a professional digital brand that attracts employers and makes them marketable for jobs.
Prof. McKee worked with our members to develop their digital information competence so that they will better understand the implications of what they post online. Members were encouraged to regularly monitor their digital information and post wisely.
