The Career Development department specifically reached out to an industry professional mainly involved in the field of Social Media. We want current students, graduating students and recent graduates, to understand the value of social media as a key tool throughout the job search and beyond!
The job search process continuously changes and social media itself, continuously changes as well, so communicating to students on such industry trends is essential in order to embark on a effective and successful job search.
