Dear Ms. O'Donnell and T.A.P. Experts, I saw the tweet from @jtodonnell on the "Am I Money?" section about an hour ago and realized how useful a tool it could be for prospective employees and employers (to have better polished candidates). I would love to hear any and all suggestions you may have on my social media websites. I need all the help I can get in developing/refining my personal brand. My work can be a good example for others to learn from as well since I use these sites frequently.

I'm interested to see what you have to say! Sincerely, Nick Gagalis FacebookLinkedInTwitter Friendfeed
