I’ve also been active on social media as a volunteer and as a paid employee.
Volunteer Social Media Work
As Program Manager for the STC Rochester Chapter from Fall of 2018 to Spring of 2019, I promoted all of my events via MailChimp, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.
As Spectrum Co-Chair for 2016-2017 and 2017-2018, publicity was my big focus. I updated the website (in WordPress) myself, used HootSuite to manage and schedule tweets and posts to Twitter and Facebook, sent out a multitude of emails via Gmail and MailChimp, and created business cards and stickers to bring to monthly local programs and the national STC conference to recruit attendees, speakers, and sponsors.
As Annual Conference Administrator for #AMWA2017
Part of my responsibilities while managing the annual conference committee for the 2017 national conference was promoting the conference through blog posts on the AMWA Engage platform and quarterly articles in AMWA Journal.
Paid Social Media Work
Communications Manager for Med Communications
As Communications Manager for Med Communication from July 2016 until January 2018, I managed all of the social media and website posts. I wrote and posted almost all of the blog posts in 2016 and 2017; the two for American Pharmacists Month were written by the fellows at the company. All blog posts can be found here: http://medcommunications.com/news/
Prior to that, the editors on my team at Med Communications and I wrote blog posts for the company’s website as requested (or as we suggested topics).
The last one we worked on together was published on the Med Communications website on Jan 18, 2016. It is still on the company website.
