Review on Social Media Careers

Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking at The Geelong Careers Expo at Deakin University. My topic-Social Media Careers
My first issue to overcome was I had a time slot of 20 min!!! How on earth do I do that? Its like reading 20 Chapters titles in the index of a book, but not being able to give any meaty information. or so I thought!
Social Media Careersare becoming more well known, but havent been around for very long Id say that its only been within the past 2-3 years. The job titles of Social Media Manager, Social Media Community Manager, Head of Social Media, Social Media Team Leader and Social Media Analyst are now very much main stream, and the Corporate companies like Flight Centre and the National Australia Bank are 2 examples that I shared with the parents and students at the Geelong Careers Expo.
In 20 minutes I managed to entertain and educate a group ofenthusiastic students in the wide world of opportunities withinSocial Media Careers. I also made a few crystal ball predictions (theyre on video for use at a later date!)
The most interesting part of the evening was speaking afterwards in private with an amazingly talented 16 year old girl about blogging. She was a treasure to speak with and I could tell very passionate about writing. Oh how I wish I had started ablogat 16! We chatted about the possibilities within Social Media and how many of her friends were not into Social Media- or they were but only for fun at this stage. After encouraging her to start a blog and let her writing come out freely, to beconsistentin posting and just enjoy the experience, I wondered that night if she would take on my advise?
Two days later I smiled widely as Ireceivedan email from her and a link to her blog! I quickly clicked on the link and started reading-mesmerisedfor the next 15 minutes. Indi (pen name) you seriously have an amazing writing style, you kept me wondering what was going to happen in everyparagraph. Your main character is so strong, yet quirky andhumorous- very lovable!
Indi keep blogging, and Ill keep reading Your Social Media Careersmay just have started!
