Concerned about your money? Need help building a budget, opening an account or applying for a loan? Our instructors can answer your questions.

Personal Branding
What is your brand? Can you confidently give a brief summary of who you are? Does your online presence reflect your personal brand?

Navigating Social Media
Do you utilize LinkedIn effectively in your job search? Did you know candidates may be passed over for a job because of how they represent themselves on Facebook or Twitter?
