Social Media week: LinkedIn

For social media week, i chose to to make a LinkedIn. I chose to make a linkedIn because it seems more professional and I think i will use it in the next couple of years. It felt weird because I’m not used to using LinkedIn but i’m hoping in the future i will have more information and it will be easier. I did not have much information because I am not experienced with many things yet. I don’t  think i am very involved  with social media. I mostly use Snapchat, Facebook., and yik yak. On facebook, I don’t normally post things, I normally just scroll to see what is going on and to stay updated on what everyone is doing.

I learned that Social media is hard. You have to keep posting so people recognize you and knowing what to post because EVERYONE can see what you post. Which is not necessarily a good thing because future employers will see what you posted. Social media can help achieve your goals by helping you connect with future employers and stay connected with friends and family. Social media is not a bad thing, it just depends on what people choose to post.

    I also made a LinkedIn because it seems the most professional site. I would have to agree that social media is hard. You have to keep posting and posting for people to stay connected with you and not lose interest. I don’t really use a whole lot of social media besides Facebook and snapchat. I should probably get more involved as well.

    I wish that I would have tried a LinkedIn since it seems like it would be a good thing to have in order to help get internships for later on. I feel like right now it is hard to distinguish yourself right now with not having much background of classes and experience, but it would be nice to have basic information to get your name out. One of the necessary parts of getting a job is networking and it sounds like LinkedIn would help with that aspect.

    I also made a Linked-In. I feel like it is a good way to show the professional side of our life, but I found it kind of intimidating, because I don’t have a ton of stuff to put on it. Hopefully as we get older and encounter more experiences this will change.
