It’s official, my undergraduate career has come to an end. On Monday afternoon I walked out of my last final with an overwhelming sensation of confusion, anxiousness, and most importantly, excitement. I am entering the next phase of my life, and like many soon-to-be-graduates, I am still planning my future career path.
Unlike most of my peers, I began my post-graduate employment search in mid-October. After numerous conversations with various Human Resource departments regarding my premature pursuit for gainful employment, I decided to change directions. The result was a massive networking campaign. I conducted research about the recent trend in social media, and listened in on the conversation. The result, well, you’re reading it!
In February 2010, I began participating in various social media outlets ranging from introducing my WordPress blog and Twitter account (@KeithEPetri), to increasing the activity on my LinkedIn. Furthermore, I designed, coded and published a centralized web space to highlight my online activities and promote my personal brand. Now, at this milestone in my life, I plan to re-evaluate my online presence.
While the Internet is flooded with information pertaining to managing personal brands (Google Search Results), I feel more confident in my connections to give valuable feedback – it is you who engage with me! Instead of using free tools or paying for services which we are all familiar with, I would truly appreciate your feedback on my website design, blog posts, Twitter activity, LinkedIn profile and overall online persona.
All feedback is welcome. Please feel free to email comments (Keith.E.Petri@GMail.com) if you do not feel comfortable posting publicly. Thank you in advance for your time and help.
