Quick NACE reflections (part two)

The NACE conference is now over so I'm just jotting down a few more thoughts. The sessions I attended since the last post were:
  1. Mobile Career Services: The Next Frontier in Student Engagement
  2. Keynote Address: Anna Deavere Smith “Snapshots: Glimpses of America in Change”
  3. Keynote Address: David Spector “Recruitment and Technology—The Journey So Far”
The mobile session (or 'mobul' as they say here) was useful. The take home for me was that whilst at Leicester we have given a lot of thought to our communications and use of social media in the past we need to revisit it. We could certainly do more to deliver useful and engaging content via mobile.

The other really useful thing about the last few days has been meeting people, both from employers and college sides. Some really useful connections have been made and I'm looking forward to keeping up with them on LinkedIn and Twitter.

Tomorrow and Tuesday we're visiting NYU and Penn univerity careers services. Having met some of their staff at the conference I'm really looking forward to finding out more about them and sharing ideas. Lucky me :)
