The photo I chose is a photo of a meeting taking place between a student and a career services representative.  I chose this because in our video we will be discussing how career services can be beneficial to every student in many different ways.  In my opinion, I thought that this picture accurately portrayed a career services office and can show what a great tool career services may be to a student.  With this, students can be linked to a huge variety of resources when deciding on majors, thinking about courses and career paths, and just thinking about their future in general.  This is a great way for students to be a step up from their peers and ultimately land a job in the real world and I highly encourage it for every student.
For our final project in my strategic presentations class, me and three other group members are required to produce a short film about the benefits and strategies that come from a career services office.  Although we have many ideas running through our minds and the brainstorming and story boarding is going wonderful, there will be a time when we have to actually put everything all together!  And of course, we can’t have a film without any music behind it!  So what better background music to play in a short film other than elevator music! I found this song on Jamendo and I could really see how my group and I could utilize this in some way or form into our project.  It is a very relaxed tune and has a nice feel to it.  I think it would go wonderfully into some of the scenes where maybe we have little to no dialogue and it would be helpful as to stitching together a silent scene where a lead is doing an actual action of some sorts.  Either waking up and getting dressed or walking on the way down to career services, I think that this song will fit nicely into most any scene.

I had trouble uploading the music file onto this post so here is a link to the song! check it out!

This video probably describes the idea behind my group’s project the best!  This is a video that depicts and says what a student is thinking and going through when deciding on a major! It shows that a lot of enthusiasm is put into picking a major and explains that it is a definite plus to be excited about your major and choosing it!  For our final project film, we have decided to film a video about an average college student choosing a major.  We hope to depict the excitements and problems that one faces when thinking about a certain major and hope to convey that it is a do-able and exciting process to go through!  I think that this video will surely help us in some way shape or form when creating our final project video.  If anything, it is a great and informative video about a lot of the content that we hope to include in our project!

Hey Mom and Dad! This is What I’m Doing in College

Mom and dad… If you’re seeing this, I’m actually really surprised that you guys know how to use the computer enough to get onto this site! For everyone else… I am a 20 year old college student at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.  I am a first generation Asian American born and raised in Arlington, Texas.

Why I created this blog:

I am creating this blog because my wonderful strategic presentation methods in digital media teacher required the entire class to create their own wordpress blog.  So.. yup! here I am! Personally, I was never into much blogging.. (I’ve never even had a Tumblr before!) but hopefully I’ll learn some cool stuff about it and get some random followers.  Yea getting ppl to follow you is pretty cool!

Here’s to getting good grades!
