We use a lot of jargon in Human Resources, and the material isn’t always exciting. This course made me rethink organizing my written material so that it is a great deal more succinct and appealing to the reader who is just trying to get the facts, fast. I was worried the course wouldn’t be applicable to me since I’m not recruiting students, but it was!
Though some sessions weren’t particularly relevant to me, this conference did what any successful professional conference does: got the juices flowing. The speakers gave me resources to look up, ways to experiment, platforms to investigate, and—most importantly—inspired new ideas of my own that I can implement immediately.
Fantastic course, I am really glad I took the course as it definitely has made me feel much more confidence in using Google Analytics at work. It is not too intensive that it detracts from my day job, and the different subjects that build on the previous week keep you interested and focused.
Overall this was a great conference to attend with social media collaborators on my campus. I left with a list of small and big ideas to implement and explore, both within my own unit and in collaboration with others.
