Social Media Management

Being a first time user to Tweetdeck I found that it is an extremely useful and convenient  source to schedule when your tweets go out. The tweets below are scheduled at appropriate times of what is taking place at school and mentions being a graphic designer. This will be extremely useful in my future career if I ever have to do social media for whatever company I will be working for and it will also help with my timing of the tweets if I’m too busy to tweet something at that time.

This was also such an easy system to use, it was pretty much as easy as doing an actual tweet. All that I had to was go to to the new tweet icon and then you could write your tweet out and then you could pick the date and time when the Tweet would be displayed. I think this site will not only be a convenience in my work life but my personal life as well.

Technology in Careers

I have already applied to around 10 internships and have only heard back from 2 of them. I never thought applying for jobs and finding an internship would be such a difficult process. However, I got 2 interviews from them, I may not have got the job but the interview experience I got from it was worth all of my time in effort.

Using sites like LinkedIn and Indeed has helped finding jobs in my career so much easier to find and is the reason I was able to apply for 10 internships. Below I listed some Graphic Design Internships that I would like to apply to and also the types of jobs that I would like to apply to when I graduate.  One of the Graphic Design careers that I thought would be really cool to apply to in the future would be the creative content director for WZZM 13, I think a lot of the technological requirements match with what I’ve been learning in my graphic design classes. I have also listed below all of the technology that you need to have knowledge of when applying for the job. I found it really cool that we had learned about many of the technologies in this class (Technology in Public Relations and Advertising).
