Getting Hired: How to Build a Career As a Social Media Professional
Thursday, December 6th from 8pm - 9:30 pm
Amy Cao, Freelance Social Media & Community Strategist

In a time when unemployment is up and hiring is down in many industries, an unprecedented number of corporations, agencies, and startups are all vying for top social media talent to join their teams.

But what does it mean to build a social media career and become an in-demand player in the field? As a company, how do you find the right social media manager? As an individual, how can you maximize social media to make connections, build relationships, find a job, and grow your brand and following? How does social media foster a sense of community and translate to measurable growth for companies?

Student Takeaways:

  • What is a Social Media Professional and how are job demands evolving?
  • How social media professionals can find the startup or company that fits them (and vice versa).
  • The secret sauce to successful social media strategies.
  • How you can maximize different social media platforms to further your brand or company.
  • Do you have to be on Pinterest?
  • What can you do to stand out from the pack?
