Westchester Campus Presentation
When I was first told that there would be a special presentation with four professionals involved in new media, I was ecstatic. When I finish my last year of college in the upcoming year, I would love to be involved in the public relations field, and more specifically involved with new media. Constantin Basturea, Robin Colner, Chris Cornell, and Paull Young were all very helpful when explaining what each of them do within their company. I never knew that there were companies out there that help other companies execute social media in the right way, like Constantin Basturea does. I really liked the how Robin Colner helps those smaller companies who do not have the money and resources to use a company like Constantin's at Converseon. She teaches the smaller companies how to use the right information and what keeps them moving in the wrong direction, which is definitely something I can see myself doing in the future. Chris Cornell is also helpful in what he does because he helps companies produce things that the people want. I think it is a great quality to have to know how to make a company successful through new media. I am glad that Paull Young went last because his accent was fun to listen to and it was also calming to know that someone as young as him can be successful. I always thought that I would have to wait many years to become extremely successful, but if there is something out there that I am interested in, Paull Young taught me that I should chase my dreams and do as much as possible to make them come true. All four speakers were clear in what they were saying and I am thankful that I got to go to a presentation like this one. Although social networks seem to be primarily to a young audience for entertainment purposed, or at least that is what I think, it is a growing medium used for many big and small companies around the world. Knowing how to use and navigate through these sites at a young age will hopefully help me when I am looking for a job in this field in the future.
