Having the opportunity to work with Hootsuite in Dr. Freberg's class was a great foundation to the world of strategic planning of social media content. I was able to take that foundation and build upon it in order to ensure that the posts that I schedule out for Team USA not only makes sense, but that there is a thought process behind everything I do and everything that goes out.
While I was a student at Syracuse University, I used Hootsuite daily at my internships. I interned at the local paper during a time when there was a shift from print to digital and I used my Hootsuite skills to help pioneer that shift. Knowing the basics of SEO and content curation helped me prepare a top-notch LinkedIn profile to help me in my job search.

My students have benefited so much from being part of the Hootsuite Student Program. They are confident when they go for job interviews—to state they know not only what social media management is, but they have had hands on access and practice learning from the best at Hootsuite.
The Student Program from Hootsuite has been a fantastic addition to my social media class. Students really value having an industry-recognized credential, and often tell me how much pride they have in completing the program. The pedagogical texture that the Student Program provides for professors is quite dynamic. I'd highly recommend it!
Several of my students have contacted me to tell me that that they are actively using what they learned through Hootsuite's Student Program during their internships. Apparently, their bosses have been very impressed with their skillsets. This is due to your university program...and I'm so grateful that it was so easy to set up and execute.
