Social Media Internships in Toronto - Open Interviews
Social Media Internships in Toronto
The demand for social media skillsets are on the rise as companies are realizing the importance of social media mandates and two way communication. Sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn are growing at an exponential rate, reaching as many as 900+ million users.
At Randstad, we have been using social media to engage with targeted audiences in new, creative ways. "We are always testing and listening. It's an exciting, fast-paced industry; every morning I check out the latest blogs and industry news to see what has changed that day and how that affects our business strategy", Lauralee Guthrie, Director Digital & Social Media.
One of the biggest challenges for companies today is finding someone who understands the nuances of each network and how to leverage it for business. Many new graduates live and breathe social media, but there are corporate processes and strategies, as well as the right voice and persona of your brand, that needs to be aligned with the social media presence.
