WTS-Boston PD Committee Hosts “Your Professional Social Media Persona” with Ashley Pate

By Allene Rieger

On October 4th, a brown bag lunch presentation on “Your Professional Social Media Persona” was given at MassDOT by Ashely Pate.  Ashley explained the difference between some of the bigger social media sites (see graphic below).  She also stressed that attendees should not use social media because people tell them to.  It takes time and has to be something you want to do and invest effort into.  Ashely went into more detail about what you should and should not post and had a detailed question session on LinkedIn. 

If anyone has any questions about LinkedIn or other media platforms, please contact Ashely Pate, CTSM at (816) 854-9589 or akpate@transystems.com.

Thank you to Ashley Pate and MassDOT for hosting the brown bag, as well as the following WTS-Boston Professional Development Committee members who contributed to the success of the event:  Jackie Carver, HDR, Stephanie Bridges, Kleinfelder, Carolann McCarron, MBTA, and Allene Rieger, Amanda Finelli and Kim Bean, all of TranSystems.
