Campus Holds Social Media Workshop



Jan 05, 2015

The Pikeville Campus recently held a social media workshop that was open for students, as well as community members, to learn how they could use social media both personally and professionally.  

The workshop was led by American National University’s communications manager Jill Sluss and social media manager Kate Stackpole, who are based out of the campus support center in Roanoke, Virginia.  

During their presentation, Jill and Kate explained the impact that social media makes on a local and global level. The variety of uses for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter were discussed, such as connecting with former or current classmates and business associates for networking purposes.  The presentation also emphasized that social media is a great tool for searching and applying for positions within one’s community. Jill shared with the group how connections made through Facebook helped shape her own career, and Kate stressed how local businesses can connect with potential customers on social media and hold contests to increase their level of engagement.  

“I was so happy that I attended,” said Julie Wilson of Friends of Coal, a local non-profit organization. “[I learned] several things and that is always a plus. I love meeting new people who are so nice and have compassion to help others.”
