Welcome to the new academic year. My name is Lisa and I am a Digital Marketing and Enterprise Lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton Business School. I also run the Social Media Champions programme at the school and would love some of you to join me this year.
Each year a group of students volunteer to document their student journeys across their own social media accounts and for us to share your stories, blogs, vlogs, pictures, snaps and tweets. I will also give you some training sessions on how to use social media to market businesses. If you are thinking of applying for a job as a social media/digital marketer, want to promote your own business via social media or even improve your professional image to prospective employers, then this programme is ideal. If you successfully complete the programme, you even leave with a certificate of achievement to add to your CV.
Each year, I also choose students from the programme to work on live projects which we have been asked to get involved in, so you will have hands-on experience of social media strategy for local businesses.
If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in, please email me L.Burbidge-Brown@wlv.ac.uk for more information or to sign up for the programme.
I look forward to working with you this year.
