JULY BLOGGING ACADEMY COURSES FOCUS ON
MARKET RESEARCH, JOB HUNTING
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Award-winning blogger and Birmingham native Wade Kwon will teach intermediate classes in partnership between the BIRMINGHAM BLOGGING ACADEMY and SHIFT LEARNING, a series of courses offered by Shift Workspace, a new downtown coworking center.
On July 20, he will teach “Using Twitter for Dynamic Market Research,” which shows students how to turn Twitter from a buzzword into a practical business tool with real-time data.
On July 21, he will teach “Finding Your Dream Job Using Social Networking,” which shows how to compete in a crowded job market with free social networking tools such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
The classes, $75 each, take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Shift Workspace, 2308 Second Ave. N. Students must register online at birminghamblogging.com ahead of time.
(In October, Kwon will be a featured speaker at the 2009 BlogWorld and New Media Expo in Las Vegas.)
Kwon started his blog, WadeonBirmingham.com, in 2005 after his employer, the Birmingham Post-Herald, folded. That site led to a new job at Southern Living magazine and an award from the Society of Professional Journalists.
