As the manager of social media strategy here at Penn Career Services, I’d like to share some exciting updates about what’s in store for this year with all of you.
First and foremost,this year we have a theme for each week of the semester on our social media channels. We’ll be announcing each theme the Friday prior to the themed week, so you know to tune in. Upcoming themes are:
October 10th-14th: Policy & Government
October 17th-21st: International Careers
October 24th-28th: Social Media
Follow us on @PennCareerServ to get the details. If you would like to request a theme, please email me at email@example.com or leave a comment below.
Secondly, we are continuing our Day in the Life on Twitter initiative. @PennCareerDay is our account where alumni in different fields post throughout their day to give you an idea of what it’s really like to work in a particular industry. Want to hear more about a particular path? Let me know, again, via email or a comment here. Are you an alum and would like to post? Fill out our survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/penncareerday and I’ll be in touch.
Third, we want to hear from students more! (If you couldn’t tell with all of my “let me know” ‘s in this post.) We are looking for students to write guest blogs, be interviewed on camera for videos on our Vimeo channels and share their insights on Twitter or Facebook. We are also looking for feedback on our existing social media efforts and will launch a student advisory group on social media in the coming weeks. If you would like to participate in any way…let me know!
Finally, I’ll be writing more updates about our social media efforts here on Penn & Beyond from time to time. In addition, I will also add tips, tricks and trends if you want to leverage social media in your job/internship search. Speaking of which, I’ll be presenting a workshop with a recruiter at the end of this month – October 26th. If you’re a social media fan or want to learn how recruiters are using social media to find candidates, you won’t want to miss it.
That’s all for now, stay savvy social media users!
