UCF | How to Use Social Media to Stand Out to Employers
I do a lot of talking. Just ask my husband. 🙃
But my favorite group of people to talk to – hands down (sorry, Brad) – are students. Students always ask the tough questions – the uncomfortable questions, even – because the answers truly matter to them.
They’re not going back to their 9-5’s after my keynote, like the corporate executives I speak with. The questions students ask – and the answers I give – directly impact their futures: the cities they move to, the places they intern, their first jobs. And what I’ve found, more often than not, is that I’m listening when I talk to students. I’m learning from them, too.
I was so excited to return to my alma mater UCF on Tuesday (5/12) to talk with students about how to use social media to stand out to employers. (As you’ll recall, I graduated right before a recession in ’07 – and got my first job writing for Rolling Stone by sending a blind LinkedIn message to the Managing Editor. So my advice is practical and personal.) 😉
