As a first blog post, I want to thank our guest speaker Kelly Rusk who gave a great presentation on how to use social networking to effectively market your own personal brand. I’ve been an active facebook and twitter user for a few years now, and just learned how having a blog can help head hunters and job researchers to find/inquire about candidates. I’ve tried blogging before but haven’t really committed to posting, or even finding a subject of interest. So here we go again, a new blog for a new presence.
Also I finally got my LinkedIn profile set up. As a third year advertising student, I think it’s time I make my connections visible so I can create a bigger network. I was surprised to see how many past guest speakers and clients I was able to connect with.
Give it a few weeks and I think I will master this social networking thing.
