Integrated Marketing Communications and Design — A New Minor at St. Catherine Univeristy

Can you create “content?”

If you want to work in business, then you need to know social media. Search social media education and you’ll find the need is great, but the opportunities few.  The Creative Group—the creative arm of Robert Half staffing reports that  demand is increasing for people with a range of interactive skills and content creation.

 The eternal quest for content • Consumers’ appetite for targeted, up-to-date and easy-to-digest news, information and entertainment seems to grow every day. Organizations need professionals who can create, curate, manage, distribute and optimize content using a variety of channels, including social media. Demand is high for copywriters, proofreaders and content managers with web expertise.
