We support students to use their favourite digital tools
for positive outcomes
When students make more educated choices about what they follow, like, share and post on social media there is an enormous opportunity for them to contribute to their employment or entrepreneurship goals.
In this social era, first impressions are made on Google. Universities, companies and employers use social media to source and screen the skills, credibility and cultural fit of candidates. Importantly, social media enables students to take control through well-considered communication, connection and collaboration online.
We encourage students to research and share information; create content that showcases their talents, activities and accomplishments; make meaningful connections; and collaborate with their communities: all to open doors for careers and contribute to their long-term success.
