Real World Tips from Former Bobcats:

  • Know your audience – Your message will be very different depending on who you are speaking to.
  • Be prepared – Do your research ahead of time and always have a plan B ready. Prepare your people ahead of time, especially if they are publically speaking.
  • Use your talents – Learn how to use design programs and be able to take on different rolls.
  • Roll up your sleeves – You are going to have to wear a lot of hats and it won’t always be glamourous. Get it done because it will better your career.
  • Be Professional – Don’t buy personal items on the corporate credit card, only use a corporate cell phone for corporate uses, and watch your social media. Hiring managers do check your social media.

 

Join us next week as we welcome Cathy McPhillips, VP of Marketing for the Content Marketing Institute!
