I’ve been over on Twitter, following and following back people.
And, yesterday, was the second to last class, of the first of six classes, of SFSU’s Social Media Certificate Program.
Yes, I’m going to a CSU, technically. This is their extension program; the main university is on the West side of SF, and the extension program is located in downtown San Francisco.
The main reason I’m doing this is to, hopefully, put myself on or near the top of the pile of resumes that land in a potential employer’s Inbox, be it Gmail or Hotmail or whatever email server they are using.
Also, it’ll look good that I have a certificate, to let a future employer know that I’m an “expert” at this*.
* = There is really NO WAY of being an expert at social media, because social media is changing every second; there’s a new website every time you blink, and no, I don’t have a Stanford case study on this, to prove that this is true. There are social media marketing websites that are popping up like dandelions on your lawn, new ones everywhere!
