Student Story: Jillian Graffagnino

“Going into this course, I had expectations that it was going to be a lot of hard work and I was definitely right about that. But, one expectation that I did not consider was how rewarding this class would be. Learning how to create my own website was an incredible experience and a process that I gave my all in order to create work that I was proud of. I was so pleased with the way that my blog turned out and it was so rewarding to know that people were reading and appreciating the blog posts I was creating.

Another wonderful aspect about this class in addition to how rewarding it felt to complete, was how prepared I now feel for a career in social media marketing. This class teaches basic skills from how to create a content calendar to how to access and interpret Google Analytics and even teaches how to run your own MailChimp campaign. It’s cool to know that all of these are tools that real companies and employers utilize when running their social media campaigns. Because of this, I believe having this hands-on experience prior to graduating from college will really set me apart when I apply for jobs after graduation. As a result, I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to take this class and learn from my professor all of the tools I hope to use in my career one day.”
