[bigletter]Are you a college student or a recent college grad? Are you looking for a job or an internship? You’ve come to the right place! These days, students and graduates are using social media as an entertainment outlet instead of a professional outlet. Time and time again, I’ve heard from potential employers, and current bosses about how they have looked at the social media profiles of a potential candidate. There are stories floating around about how students are getting kicked out of school for something that they posted online. That’s what makes this topic so critical. In 2015, I completed a mock public relations campaign about the do’s and dont’s of social media. I feel like now would be a perfect time to reiterate what I found. If you have not, now is the time to improve your social media profiles.[/bigletter]
This is my guide to negotiating salary. As a recent college graduate and facing the grueling process of finding a job, I felt slightly intimidated. But with a major in marketing and Corporate Relations, in addition to prior experience in journalism, public relations, digital media and advertising my confidence began to soar. My first couple of job interviews were in April before graduation. I spent the remainder of the summer job searching and interviewing. The opportunities were not exciting because they did not offer the challenge that I needed. Work should be fun and offer opportunities to grow.
