As a student - why write a blog?

I am working with some students who have been asked to write a blog as a part of a course they're doing. They may well ask "why?"

So, as well as getting a feel for content marketing - in my opinion one of the great new directions - the student will be enhancing their personal brand. I've done it with other students in other courses and it works.

I have a dozen students in the last two years who have landed a great job in marketing who have thanked me for getting them into writing a blog, because they feel it got them over the line.

Here's one, currently working full time in NYC.

  2. Just listened too this podcast episode which discusses blogging and social media. Very relevant for your students.
