When you are on-line we sometimes forget that other people may be able to see what we post. They may even be people you hope would never see the things that we post. The next couple of clips are some examples from the "Ellen" show. I bet these people never thought their pictures would have been shown on national tv.
I met a Nepris representative last week at UCET. I found their product very interesting. They have a couple of options available. You can schedule a meeting with an expert. The expert will meet with your class and help them to understand more about their career. They also have a video library available to previous experts that you can view.
You can signup for free and I encourage you to consider it. With the free account, you can schedule one free live session with your class, join one live industry chat, and access their video library. There are paid options that will give you more access. I would say give the free option a try, and if you like it then maybe look for options to pay for the upgrade.
