During the event Sarah will spend some six hours taking an in-depth look at the role of social media in marketing and public relations. This will be a hands-on learning experience focussing on practical tools and techniques attendees can take and implement in very real ways.
The event also represents a tremendous opportunity for any student interested in a career in marketing or public relations. Sarah has devoted a considerable amount of time to helping students and new professionals, including the launch of the Sevans Network to provide practical support and assistance.
Recognizing the value of this opportunity, we are pleased to announce that Social: IRL sponsor Klout are providing the opportunity for two full time students to attend the event at no charge as part of the ongoing Social: IRL and Klout “future influencer” program.
To apply for one of the two complimentary registrations, students should describe in 500 words or less how they are currently using social media and how they feel they can best use social media to impact their future career opportunities.
Use our online contact form to submit entries. Make sure to include full name, email, contact phone number, and Twitter user name (if applicable).
Entries must be received by end of day Thursday, May 12. Individuals receiving the complimentary registrations will be contacted Friday May 13, and will need to be available to attend the Social: IRL event on Tuesday, May 17. Winners will each receive a complimentary event registration. They will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements and expenses. Registrations are non transferable. No cash substitutions.
Thanks to Klout for providing this opportunity to two special “future influencers”.
