JOB HUNT / 13 June 20187 Ways to Use Social Media in Your Job Search
I could sit here all day and tell you all the reasons why ProSky is worth your time, but I’m a strong believer in showing rather than telling.
So, instead, I think it’d be more interesting (and valuable) for you to from hear Ivy Au, a student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and former ProSky student.
I had the opportunity to ask her about her experience, and she was kind enough to share her story with me (and let us publish it here on the blog) in the interview below.
My name is Ivy, and I am currently a Junior in Cal Poly SLO studying Business Information Systems.
Before ProSky, I knew about social media but not about the marketing aspect of it. All I really knew about social media marketing was that it was everywhere on the web and that it was definitely a growing business trend. The social media training program offered me free tools and resources that I never knew existed, that would definitely help anyone who is on the road to becoming a social media marketing genius.
My colleague recommended me to join ProSky, and would not stop going on about how revolutionary it was. I had the time, and it seemed legitimate. The idea of doing a project for an established company was what really reeled me in.
First and foremost, ProSky offered me an education and a hands-on project that is relative to the real world and not just a usual class-based set-up assignment. My group and I had a lot of autonomy on how to set up our project. It was definitely amazing to have mentors along the way to look at our progress and give us pointers, guidance, and tips on improvement!
It’s real. It’s not the usual hypotheticals I deal with in school. By the way, my school’s slogan is “learn by doing,” and this ProSky training course is the exact definition of that.
Definitely! And I actually already have. SEO marketing is an interesting topic that I am excited to learn more about and to be able to put that newfound knowledge into practice.
Yeah! It can only really help you. And of course, it looks great on your resume and it definitely sparks an interest at career fairs. I have heard a lot of “wows” and have been given the hard-sought recruiter emails when I brought up my Prosky Social Media Marketing project.Ready for your own ProSky experience?
