I’m starting to recruit students to be a part of a new division of our Founder’s Society (our student ambassador program). Members will blog, spend some time on Facebook, and participate in our Virtual Open Houses. Below is an overview of what the team will do and their responsibilities:

The Make Up
The Founders Society e-Team is a crack group of technology savvy Founders Society Members. Just as tour guides introduce potential students to our campus and campus life, the e-Team will do the same – in cyber space.

The group will be made up of eight individuals, plus at least one study abroad blogger. With the exception of the Study Abroad blogger, e-Team members are expected to fulfill the responsibilities listed below.

Responsibilities:

Blogging
e-Team members are required to write a blog post weekly and are encouraged to do more. A happy blog is a frequently updated blog. More updates give a reader a reason to check back regularly. They don’t to be epic posts either. Long posts get dull quickly, but a couple of hundred words every few days will result in people reading the blog more often. If you can tie them in to SMC that’s great, but non SMC posts are great as well. The most important thing is the frequency of the posts. The more posts the better. Have fun with it!

YouTube
e-Team will from time to time post videos to YouTube and imbed them in their blogs. These videos will provide another glimpse into the life of a Saint Michael’s College student. This is a great outlet for your creativity. Again, have fun with it and be creative!

Facebook, KnightSpace, etc.
e-Team members will monitor the Office of Admission page, any class pages, and KnightSpace. Their presence isn’t meant to be an overseer or a authority figure, rather to provide factual information when necessary and correct any misinformation posted to these sites.

Virtual Open Houses
e-Team members are required to be present and participate in all VOH’s that may occur throughout the year. These are two hour chat sessions with accepted students. They provide an opportunity for accepted students to ask questions and interact with current students without having to travel to campus.

Compensation:

e-Team members will be compensated in a similar fashion to Campus Tour Guides. Each significant blog posting will be compensated at the same pay rate as a campus tour. There is no limit to the amount of posts an e-Teamer may publish. As posting in a blog should take less time than an hour long tour of campus, e-Team members will also be expected to spend a variable amount of time (depending on the time of year) on the Social Networking outlets.

If you’re interested in applying, send me a brief 200 word or so essay explaining some things that you’re involved in on campus. Attach it in a Word doc and email is to amillikin@smcvt.edu. If you already have a blog, send me a link!

  1. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
    My blog site is in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would genuinely benefit from some of the information you provide here.

    Please let me know if this okay with you. Many thanks!

  3. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your site.

    It appears like some of the written text within
    your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen
    previously. Appreciate it

  4. Mindfire expertise in Quality assurance testing
    comes from our long association with testing
    practices. Computers are located in different buildings, it takes time
    to round them all. You can use Pointer Plus – without purchasing – for as long as you
    like, but if you’re using an unlicensed copy, Pointer Plus
    puts up a translucent “Trial Version” banner on
    your screen.

  5. The second cause of inflation is an in the real value of goods or services however this is usually offset by a decrease in prices elsewhere
    unless there is monetary inflation present in the system
    or there is an increase in the value of imports relative to exports.

    ‘ Designers are knocking down the old and rebuilding new,
    stylish houses in these locations – looking to make them the
    next ‘spot to be. The length of the sides is 755 ft,with only 8in difference between the
    longest and the shortest.

  6. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I
    know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  7. I am no longer sure where you are getting your information, but good topic.
    I needs to spend a while finding out more or understanding
    more. Thank you for wonderful information I was in search of this
    info for my mission.

  8. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this excellent blog!
    I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to new updates and will share this website with my Facebook group.
    Chat soon!

  9. hi!,I love your writing so so much! percentage we communicate more about your
    article on AOL? I require a specialist on this space
    to unravel my problem. May be that is you! Looking ahead to see you.
