Next week, students in my social media marketing classes will pick companies and organizations to work with in their semester-long team projects. Some of them already have ideas of who they would like to help but most teams still need to find access to a company or an organization. I am receiving many emails from businesses asking for student help but my inbox is getting messy.
Therefore, I developed a brief survey that I ask you to fill out if you wish to be considered. Your willingness to facilitate a student project is much appreciated and please note that non-profit organizations are also encouraged to participate as we wish to reach out more to the broader community.
For best chances to be considered, please complete the survey ASAP, ideally before Monday classes begin at 1 pm, 2.30 pm, and 7 pm (February 4) but most likely there will still be teams in need of a company also on Wednesday February 6 (classes at 1 pm).
Disclaimer: There are no guarantees that your project will be chosen by any student team but please consider throwing your name in the hat if you are willing to open up and allow for students to gain some valuable real-world experience. Please note that these project teams are not to be mistaken for paid consultants. In the past, some businesses have been very grateful for the valuable help they have gotten and some organizations have indeed achieved higher levels of social media presence, organization, and understanding. In other cases, businesses had expected more from the students. That is just the name of the game and neither I personally nor Chapman University is responsible for the actions or recommendations by the students.
