How to Use Digital Communication to Land a Job, Get Promoted, or Start A Business

Whether you're just starting your career and are looking to get hired, or are well established and looking to grow your profile, one thing is for sure: you must build a digital presence. COVID has only accelerated the growing trend of building profile in a digital world, and today's successful professionals must master new ways of communicating and connecting. Michael Marra, Founder of Entre, a professional network for entrepreneurs, joins me to talk about the new imperatives of digital networking.
 
Michael explores what it means to thrive in a "mixed reality", how success and credibility stem increasingly from digital presence rather than credentials, and how you must authentically build and maintain your presence. We talk Clubhouse, LinkedIn, Twitter, mistakes to avoid and more.
