One of the first ongoing projects that my internship had me do daily was to spend an hour finding media content related to what we do at our company. For example, some of my searches would include tags such as sustainability, mobile technology, outdoor industry, online security, E-commerce, and technology trends.
Thus, being someone who is more tech savvy and into digital/social media trends, it is incredibly helpful for me to look at other credible news sources to get a better sense of what my company wants to be informed with. Not only is it helpful for me to stay on top of these topics but it also makes me realize that I like reading news, latest trends and technology updates (that are not related to Facebook or on my Facebook news feed).
By constantly reading about what I’m passionate about, I’m not only informing myself but I am reading up on the opinions and reviews of others so that I can gain a greater perspective on the topics and issues instead of being narrow-minded about them. This reiterates my previous post about doing what you love.
If you are passionate about anything, immerse yourself in it.
And find yourself an interesting and active news feed that can benefit you in the long run.
