Storey's stories


Our 2016 grad, Harold Storey, returned to speak to the twitter for media class this week. After he left, students debriefed. Here are some of their comments, their takeaways.
  • Is a social media coordinator with a team at VI Marketing and Branding.
  • Traditional media will never go away; but the way you do it will.
  • Didn't even have a Twitter before he took this class.
  • He  journaled  what he was doing during internship
  • He is always learning on his job and always trying to take it to the next step and elevating himself.
  • Customer preferences for social media. It's the customer’s say and their money; you have to do what they say.
  • Very relatable. Just graduated and can see self doing what he is doing.
  • Interesting how he took control of the the taco shop Twitter.
  • Always important to take the next step. Wants to see himself on top in 5 years.
  • All it takes is approaching someone. You never know where it will take you.
  • Relates to about anything of how he'll do anything in life like his portfolio. Going the extra mile got him the job.
  • Always  keep learning. More comfortable in the job and still learning and coming in here talking to us.
  • Coming back to talk to us about it. Didn't have anything negative to say. Pretty sure he had bad experiences and still didn't have anything bad to say.
  • Have  been with him in classes; never thought he'd come back and inspire self to do better. Get selfs act together.
  • Talking about connections; everyone you meet has value especially with
  • Very persistent. Didn't mind bothering them until he got the job--people are shy about harassing those or being persistent.
  • Detail oriented. Seeing it in perspective.
  • Pro: very self aware. New hiring and spouse.
  • Con: won't call him because
  • Continuing your education and building your resources.
  • Works with Facebook; doesn't like Facebook.
  • Talking about what he does day to day and the logistics behind his job. It's more than Twitter, but what the customers want and don't want.
  • Snapchat is a tough sell.
