I’ve always been a huge social media fan. I remember in high school when you had to be invited to Facebook by another one of your high school classmates, because Facebook was only supposed to be for college students at the time. Since then I have grown to love social media. I’ve documented the last 7+ years of my life on social media, and my interest only continues to grow.
I have used all kinds of social media tools, from Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to Instagram and Foursquare. I love social media, and that has sparked my interest of digital media and digital marketing. I was introduced through my advisor at Michigan State University (GO GREEN!) to a class called New Media Driver’s License that was offered through the College of Communication Arts and Sciences. I heard great reviews from fellow classmates about the class, so I enrolled this past fall semester.
After the first NMDL class, I was hooked. I knew that this was stuff that I was really interested in, and I could see myself working in the digital field. The NMDL course opened my eyes to many different digital platforms. I learned about writing blogs, social media in business, and the importance of SEO and SEM, which I didn’t even know about before taking the class.
Since I completed my Driver’s License, I applied what I learned to the rest of my courses at Michigan State and completed successful advertising campaigns for my clients using key tools like Google AdWords.
During my internship this summer at Ingenex Digital marketing, I hope to sharpen and grow my knowledge and skills of digital marketing. Through my experiences at Ingenex, I look forward to learning a lot and then taking that knowledge and applying it to my future career.
