Do you need help with social media? Now it is time again for students in my Internet/Social Media Marketing class to select companies or organizations to help in terms of their Internet and social media presence. The work they do is within the scope of their team projects. While some students typically have ideas of what company they would like to work with, others would be very excited about the opportunity to work with real businesses or organizations that they otherwise would not have gotten in contact with such as a high-tech company in northern Sweden that worked virtually with one team last year, see Oricane blog post.
For priority consideration, please complete the following brief survey [now expired] as soon as possible and ideally by noon on Wednesday, February 5, 2014. 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.
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.
