Social Media Correspondent Strategy

Thanks for helping us increase awareness about the Grad CareerFestival. We have created this event because college career centers do not have an active program postgraduation to support graduates in their first professional job search.

If you are a graduate we hope the series will give you fundamental ideas on how you can launch and lead your career. Your participation will also go a long way in helping others pick up ideas, strategies, and skills they will need to land a job faster!
Our job is to provide a steady stream of content through your existing social media channels.

Ideas to promote the Grad CareerFestival

  • Take our social media content and modify it or change to reflect your personality and audience
  • Take the Social Media spreadsheet that should be included with this information to distribute through your personal social media channels
  • Use the content to create a webcam video where you verbally tell the audience about the each authors presentation
  • Do Google searches to find educational journalist in your area or region and reach out to them. You can set up a free account at www.rocketreach.co and find their email to reach out to them, or you can locate them on www.linkedIn.com and send them a note, or finally many will offer their Twitter name which you could direct twitter to them.
