I’m Jil Wright, Director of Web Communications at Hinds. David and I spoke to the Drafting and Design Technology students last week about social media, electronic portfolios, marketing yourself and mobile apps. We had a great time and left with a renewed enthusiasm for what we do. I was also inspired to finish this post on mobile apps that I believe are essential for students.
Have you ever been to a new place and had no idea where you were going? If you answered yes, you are not alone. Thousands of incoming college freshmen experience this problem every fall. Thankfully, a new mobile app called FourSquare can help you find your way in a foreign place.
