Well, time to hit the shower (now that I got a cup of java). I’m getting ready to do an interview with a Kansas State alumni and digital media major. This gentlemen should prove to be a great addition to my collection of video interviews thus far. These interviews are going into a 2-minute video, showcasing K-state’s digital media student’s, teachers, and alumni. A very brief version of this will be within another video, in the form of a thirty second commercial.
This time I will make sure this interview is perfect. The first three, unfortunately, I used the camera source as the audio (my bad). *Warning*, “Always use an external source of audio when you take video footage that you want its audio from.”
The first three I have to shoot over, as they are too quiet or just crapping sounding.
Okay, here I go…

I’ve been a busy beaver lately trying to keep up with this semesters work-load. I am feeling my years as late (52) and have been having mixed emotions about my future. I think I’m just tired and stressed, so I will let my thoughts brew and see where they go. Being a senior at my age is tough :p
I don’t feel lately that I fit in on campus, and have lost my zeal and enthusiasm. My real goal was to just show my parents that I could get a bachelor’s degree like my little sister. Six of us siblings and my little sister is the only one of us to have a B.S., Actually, besides my little sister, I am the only other sibling to get a degree (A.S) 3 brothers and 1 older sister never went to college. My 3 older siblings never even graduated high school.
I did lousy in school my whole life as a kid, and this time in college I have worked real hard and have done very well. I proved to my parents that I can do good in school and I am not a dummy. Oh well, Spring break is coming in a day, so I can hopefully get the mental rest I so desperately need. I will also play catchup on a few things for school. 🙂

Today in my social media class we discussed an article in the U.S.News , “What recruiters think when they see your linkedIn profile.”
The article states, “Nearly 95 percent of recruiters use LinkedIn to source and vet candidates, a recent survey found.”
Impressive bit of information I thought. They go on to say, “If you want to impress the heck out of recruiters, answer their questions.”
These were the questions they chose:
- Does this person really want the job?
- Who does this person know?
- Who has this person impressed?
- Does this person even have a personality?
- Is this person a big deal?
If this sounds interesting to you, click on the link and see what’s said about these questions.
I setup an account with linkedIn to help facilitate my eventual job placement. I have been steadily working on it to bring it up to a well organized, info packed presentation of my skills and other essential items necessary to get a great job.
