Are you leveraging your social networks?

Did you know that the most recent data tells us that 31% of Bentley students majoring in Marketing, Information Design & Corporate Communication, Creative Industries or Media and Culture found their positions through networking?  I recognize that how or who to network with is different for everyone.  Traditionally, the one on one, face to face interaction is still considered most effective.   However, given today’s usage of phones and devices and the ever evolving usage of social media, there are a plethora of new possibilities to effectively network using those resources.  Using all these tools in addition to your interpersonal relation skills sets you up for a potentially endless path of connecting with companies and people you may have thought were untouchable.  For more information on how to optimize your social media to network click here.
