Social Media 101 @ Georgia Tech

Last night Adam and I spoke to Georgia Tech students at the Scheller College of Business. This was my first time really checking out Tech’s campus and Tech Square, and I honestly did like the feel a lot, but this will probably be the only time you see me posting a Georgia Tech picture on my blog. 😉

We spoke on social media preparedness leading up to the application and interview processes these students will soon be going through. The audience included Juniors and Seniors from the business school, as well as the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, among others. Thanks to Thomas Ross for the invitation, and for putting everything together, you did a great job repping Tech. Also, great to speak with Anthony Ferrari and Hunter Tuck following the discussion.

I’ve attached my (very barebones) presentation, here, if you’d like to check it out. We covered: thinking like an employer, valuable social traits, LinkedIn and Twitter tips, and specific opportunities and resources available. I think it was beneficial for them and always enjoy at least trying to help out — I was in their shoes about two years ago.

    Atlanta-based social strategist Steffan Pedersen posted another great recap on his blog. This time, Steffan and Cox Communications social media leader Adam Naide spoke to business students at Georgia Tech. As a recent graduate of UGA, Steffan no doubt gave some excellent advice.

    I understand the pain you mention in your post, Steffan … that would be like me speaking at Clemson! #Gamecocks

    In all seriousness, keep up the great work, Steffan!
