Is there a specific online platform you'd like to learn about? Do you know what a Twitter hashtag is and how it's useful? And then there's enhancing your Facebook profile to make sure it reflects your professional edge. This is the personal training you've been looking for. 

JAWdesses with tech expertise to share will be on hand. Plus, Vanessa Schneider, a Google Maps expert, and LaToya Drake, a search expert from the Google for Media team, will both be in attendance. In addition, Tara Walker, a data analyst from Tableau Software, will be here to talk about the cool mapping that can be done with data. Trainers from FindTheBest, LinkedIn, CodeActually and other tech gurus will also be at CAMP so take advantage of their expertise.
