GRAYSLAKE – Whether you are a returning College of Lake County student or a high school junior or senior planning to take fall CLC classes, you can learn digital skills, including how to manage your online reputation, at a 10-day Summer Bridge to Success class.
The free, one-credit workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Thursday, July 16 to 31, at CLC’s Grayslake Campus, 19351 W. Washington St.
Students will learn practical tips, such as managing what a Google search would reveal about them.
“Potential employers and colleges make decisions based on your social media and digital footprint,” Rodolfo Ruiz-Velasco, multicultural student access and success coordinator, said in a news release. “Students will find out how to avoid making mistakes that could negatively affect their future.”
Additionally, a class on digital design skills covers webpage design, branding, coding and blogging. In a workshop on building a personal brand, students will receive a professional headshot and digital résumé assistance to project a positive image of their skills and abilities.
Besides the practical sessions, Summer Bridge to Success will include a daylong, chartered bus trip to visit Lake Forest College and the University of Illinois-Chicago.
