I am currently enrolled in my last year of the BBA program at NAIT majoring in Marketing. This blog is an educational requirement for me; however, I was given the opportunity to take it online! To give you an idea of the type of material I will be writing about, my course is entitled Social Media Marketing (NAIT Course Code: MARK 474). Overall, the goal of my blog is to connect with people, more specifically, share with you my thoughts on Social Media!
To give you an idea of my personal interests and topics I will cover in my blog; have a look at my Twitter account (http://twitter.com/KEnticknap). I did not use Twitter very much before starting this blog. However, I have recently started following other students at NAIT, influential Marketing people/groups and celebrities like Justin Berber and Ellen DeGeneres (Both are great at connecting with fans over social media!)
I now have a personal Facebook and Twitter account which allow me to conect with my friends and family. However, although I am a marketing student, I am still learning how to use social media for work. I will be updating my LinkedIn account and searching for a job soon; so I hope that this course will help clarify what is required of staff/companies that engage in social media. I then plan to share my knowledge with you!
As a fourth year student, I know it can be difficult to take online classes; so, in addition to discussing social media, I plan to provide comments about my class (MARK474) in the last blog post. My hope is that I will also help future students who are considering online education.
I look forward to hearing what other people have to say about my blog, so don’t be shy, reply!!!
Until next blog….
