This semester marks the end of my four years as a University of Wollongong student, and while reflecting on this fact during the mid-year break, I began picturing my life post-University and considering what I wanted it to look like. One thing I was sure of was that I wanted to continue to pursue a career in social media marketing and event management, and that this would entail the continual building of my portfolio to stand out amongst other applicants in such a competitive industry.
My digital artefact is the continuation of my existing music blog, Listen Loud, to address the problem of limited and competitive entry-level employment opportunities in the Australian music industry. With equal passions for live music and digital marketing, this project will contribute to the expansion of my professional portfolio to support my application for industry positions following the completion of my degree. To do so, my primary focus this semester will be on expanding the Listen Loud community through the further development and optimisation of my Instagram and Facebook accounts, and creation, curation and communication of content.
