It’s never too early to begin building a professional presence online. Whether you’re pursuing academic, alternative-academic, or post-academic careers, creating a professional website can help you put your best foot forward with future colleagues and employers. In this workshop, we’ll talk about conceptual and practical considerations for building an online presence, look at some examples from scholars and practitioners in your field, and set you up with your own (free!) website through digital.brynmawr.edu. Digital.brynmawr.edu can also be used to host digital exhibitions, blogs, digital publications, databases, and much, much more. And best of all—you can take everything you create in digital.brynmawr.edu with you when you graduate.
