Fall 2012 is an exciting time for Career Services and our growing social media presence. Here is a quick preview of what to expect from us:
Social Media Challenge. In less than two weeks, on September 17th, we will launch our first ever, Social Media Challenge. It’s going to be awesome for a few reasons. First and foremost, there is a pretty sweet prize, a white, iPad 2. Not only will this help you with your classes and manage your own social media presence, but it is sponsored by the world’s largest professional network, LinkedIn. Second, we tapped into our creative talent here at Career Services, to create dynamic clues to highlight the wide-range of resources we have for all the undergraduate and graduate students we serve. Third, did I mention the sweet prize? White. iPad. 2. Finally, it is super easy to enter. Watch the clues that will be shared exclusively on our social media platforms, and fill out the online entry form, which will also be shared on our social media platforms. The more you participate, the greater your chances to win! It’s very similar to networking on LinkedIn, where the more connections you make, the more power your network holds.
Where can you find a full list of our social media accounts? Go to the challenge’s website or look for a “penncareerserv” handle on your favorite social media platforms, like Facebook.com/PennCareerServ.
Social Media Themes. All of you have an interest in different career paths, graduate school programs and internship opportunities. Each week, our social media platforms will have a different theme to share resources relevant for these diverse interests. Upcoming themes include:
- September 10th – 14th: Navigating Opportunities in Business. What do you need to know to find and succeed in business? Inspired by our career fairs, Career Link and ECAD.
- September 17th – 21st: Discover Career Services Resources. A broad overview of all that we can do for you, inspired by our Social Media Challenge. The resources we share will likely help you find the answers to our clues, and your odds to win that white iPad 2.
- September 24th – 28th: Policy and Government Careers. Want to work for the government? Make an impact through policymaking? We’ll look at relevant resources leading up to our annual, Policy and Government Career Fair, on September 28th.
- October 1st – 5th: Common Good Careers. We’ll continue our focus on career opportunities that make an impact, and expand our scope to include nonprofits, social services and other public interest career and internship opportunities.
As you can see, there is a lot coming up on Career Services’ social media channels. So, stay tuned and be sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Pinterest, and watch our videos on Vimeo. We have lots to share and want to interact through these platforms, because after all, that is what social media is all about!
