Adwords: One Exam One Life
Congratulations, we are all certified in the Fundamentals of Google Adwords! The exam was brutally intensive, however we all walked away with important knowledge that is going to come in handy to help companies run ads online.
We also learned how to consolidate your ad groups, Ad placements, how handle your bidding strategy, and so much more information! The exam consisted of 100 difficult questions that gave several students a headache. Some students took it alone, others took it together in fear. I probably would not recommend live tweeting about taking an exam with people, providing the exact room number and giving easy access to those entering upon a hot room of anxiety.
Look Now Look Again
Since graduation for most of us is right around the corner, it’s time to start your job search. We all have attained several new skills including knowledge of Balsamiq, content calendars, SEO, basic HTML, Google Adwords, etc. so we should be fearless when applying for jobs. You should start looking now! Maybe search for job titles like Social media Coordinator, Media Marketing Management, Event planning, or just keep browsing and apply to multiple jobs! Here’s a list of some online job search websites to check!
This week we presented our Balsamiq mock ups of our digital hub 2.0 projects. Our mock ups helped us gather an idea of where our group agency is headed. Now that we have a basic idea of how our website will be laid out, we have to build our websites. In addition, we need to create social media accounts, start gaining followers, and keep them active by posting a few times a week. We have to do this in order to gather reporting of Twitter and Google analytics as well as Facebook insight and SEO score. Each agency also needs to have a Google+ account!
Next class, we are meeting in the media incubator so we can take our professional head shots for our websites. Clients like to see class and professionalism. Wear nice clothing, and please don’t be that guy who looks like he just got done hanging out with big bird from sesame street at a summer camp rave. #PeaceSignBroYo
Ike went to Jungle Jim’s and fed us exotic snacks. The red spicy sucker, the chips that smelled like paint, the crackers that looked like dog food. What Jungle Jim’s snack did you hate the most?
