EACE Social Media Member of the Month
EACE Blog contribution by Gerald Tang, Associate Director of Undergraduate Career Development, Columbia University’s Center for Career Education
The EACE Tech Committee is pleased to announce a new initiative to recognize active members of EACE on social media. Starting in January the committee will be kicking off our “social media member of the month” initiative. Once a month we will recognize and send a little gift to someone who we’ve seen really contributing to the conversation online. Here’s what you can do to be recognized:
1. Joining a Twitter chat – this could be joining repeatedly or participating in first ever Twitter chat
2. Active on Twitter in other ways and/or using #EACE hashtag
3. Active on LinkedIn group
4. Active on Facebook with EACE page
STAY AND BE ACTIVE!
Join us for #EACE Twitter Chats. It occurs every second Tuesday of the month!
What is a Twitter Chat? A group of people who all tweet about the same topic at a designated time using a specific tag (#) called a hashtag that allows it to be followed on Twitter. Think of it as a virtual facilitated roundtable discussion on Twitter.
Want to just follow the conversation? Go to Tweetchat.com and type in #EACE
