Establish yourself as a professional and attract employers with an individualized personal website
An online personal brand is becoming increasingly important across all fields. In this interactive training, students will learn how to plan and design their own personal website using Squarespace which can be used as a showcase or portfolio for applying for work.
The strategies and techniques will allow students to use their website now and for years to come, setting the stage for their online personal brand.
This is intended for students with no prior knowledge of website design and is therefore not a technical or coding-based course. The Squarespace platform provides free tech support to its customers. This training requires that students spend time outside of the taught hours working on their website. It is therefore intended for smaller groups (max. 12 students).
