Digital Footprint – Ensuring that your Digital Self is protected in the Social Media


Your Situation

Nowadays we simply can´t imagine being without Facebook, Twitter, Xing, LinkedIn ... social online networks, both private as well as professional. They offer a very promising potential for discovering new career possibilities, giving us access to professional communities and for enabling technical exchanges.

By using them, we both consciously and unconsciously provide an enormous amount of information which in turn provides others with a picture of us as a person in the digital realm. Gaining control over your digital footprint and designing it safely and professionally, represents a challenge which must be tackled systematically.

This training is therefore targeted at those individuals who wish to design their online identity professionally and those who wish to heighten their visibility and want to network – especially specialists and managers who wish to advance their careers and who seek technical exchanges and knowledge in the social media.
