Animoto Video

Again Animoto Video was used for Social Media class, we worked in a small group of four people. A short roughly 30 second video was prepared for a social media tool, we picked the photo sharing app. Instagram. The video was short and informative with short bits of facts and info on the application. This video had a song and multiple pictures included as well. This would allow potential employers to see a creative side of yourself and your ability to complete a project in a neat and interesting way. This video making process was a new experience for me and now I have a bit understanding of video preparation and making.

Class Wiki

Like Blogger our class Wiki was a site I used for Social Media class. The Wiki allowed for us to work in small groups of three or four and become experts on specific aspects of social media. My group was responsible for Photo Sharing Applications. This allowed us to demonstrate our knowledge on the topic and again highlights writing skills in a positive way for potential employers to observe. This also allowed others to learn and better understand topics that were not assigned specifically to their group.

Blogger

Blogger is a Blog site, I created the account for my Social Media class. This site is a great place for students in the class to answer a class question and to comment on others answers. It is a great way to expand your thoughts and opinions on a specific question. Blog posts that I have written may highlight my writing skills and be a positive aspect in the hiring process to a potential employer.

Pinterest

This is a site where someone who does not know me personal could go to my page and see my interests and hobbies. Also some of my links could be in interest to prospective employers or could be related to the type of job I am trying to obtain, proving my passion in the feild.
