Revised Career and Social Media Omnichannel!

 


Hollandcodes.com has revised our Career and Social Media Omnichannel.

Social media channels are modes of communication that allow us to access information, to problem solve, and make decisions.  Client engagement with social media channels has evolved through three levels –

  • Cross channel
  • Multi-Channel
  • Omni-Channel 

Cross channel is the foundational level for social media channels that you can use to complete the following tasks –

  • Go on the internet
  • Research a topic
  • Make a career decision

Multi-Channel  is next social media channel level that is useful to complete the following activities – 

  • Find the optimal channel for each student
  • Communicate with students in the best possible way
  • Engage the students the way they like to communicate with us 

You are using an Omni Channel when you -

  • Communicate on any channel that we want at any time  we want in the way we want. 
  • The experience has to be consistent across the channels.

Omni-Channel is highest social media level that provides immediate 24/7 access to perform the following career social media tasks – 

  • Career Exploration
  • Job Search
  • Resume Writing
  • Interviewing

 

Another example of a career social media omni-channel is out Career & Social Media Resource Center.

 


Social media tools are mobile and web technologies, e.g. Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter.
