 Listen up communication professionals!! Social media runs deep in the hearts of desired communication professions. Hootsuite is a tool that all professionals should consider taking advantage of.  Being able to understand how to navigate Hootsuite, and other dashboards of its nature, are great ways to help boost your ability to market your skill. Being able to exhibit skill and creativity is key to landing the job that you love.

Hootsuite is a blogging dashboard built to help you manage all of your social media accounts at once. Hootsuite was designed to help social media professionals and their teams critique their social media campaign in one place. The dashboard saves time for these professionals and helps them to better prepare posts. The program demonstrates how effective each post  appears for a company’s campaign.  It allows professionals the opportunity to receive direct messages from your following, gives you the opportunity to respond in real time, or even pass on the information to other members of your campaign team to be looked over. Hootsuite gives insight to the number of people who have searched your company’s name, direct insight into what the world is saying about the organization, where the content and chatter is shared, and even monitors the demographics of your following and their engagement with your page. That is the true beauty of Hootsuite.  Being able to manipulate data for the success of future posts is what being a Communication professional is all about.

I have completed my Hootsuite Certification online at Hootsuite University. I look forward to utilizing the tool to market myself as a social media/communication professional. I plan to stress the advantage of utilizing the Hootsuite dashboard within my future internships and employers when necessary until my expertise lands me in a position that I can be proud of.

I am thankful for my college experience. I have learned many great skills. Critical thinking has been one of the most important. I’v discovered that I can accomplish many goals by simply thinking outside of the box, paying close attention to small details, and being aware of anything that follows the two words “Listen up!” 

:)

Ok: College, then what?

 

Tenesha. A small town girl born to teenaged parent. Mom was forced to graduate high school and get a job. Dad attempted college. Raising a child in college is expensive so Dad is eventually forced to choose a job over class. Teen parents turned into single mother and helping father. Tenesha becomes a head strong young lady scared of failure and desiring to be successful.  She decided to take the road less traveled in her community and journeyed off to the city for college.

Tenesha? Yeah, that’s me. I have been waiting for the month of April, year 2014 for a months now. April has arrived. Crunch time has surfaced. Graduation is coming. I will be the first to earn a degree in my family. How neat is that? Great, I know. I wonder though, what does it mean? Like most college graduates, I am looking at two options and neither are what I had ever imagined. In high school, you create your college perfect world profile based off the encouragement that your counselors and favorite teachers share with you. They neglect to share with you that life after college graduation is not guaranteed to have balloons and Champaign celebration for your amazing, life-long, supporting job. Realtiy is that I have two options: Stay and struggle or go home and be still. I can continuing interning and get by serving tables. That will allow me to build my resume and gain experience in the field so that I will be more marketable for higher paying jobs. I also have option of returning home to the country, save money for graduate school by living with my family, and apply for any job looking for professionals with Communication degrees.  What is the next step? Which way do I go? Do I choose my career over my sanity?  

I am not sure what I should do or which way I should turn. I know I am not alone. This is life after college. I am 21 years old. I am young. I would like to think that I have an entire life to live but that just is not the case. I want to live every day like it could be my last. I want to experience things that my parents never had the chance to. I want to be able to afford to bring them along for the journey some day. I want to achieve excellence. I want to be great. In which direction should I turn to take the path to that road?
