Higher Education Students
Build Your Brand
Build Your Impressions
by William Jackson,
My Quest To Teach

Before higher education students can start
their careers the reality is they cannot wait
until graduation week or even after
graduation to build a Brand or create
favorable impressions.
The process of building a Brand is best started years earlier.
The unfortunate reality is that students are building their Brand
and creating impressions when they start posting content online.
That can mean when a child in elementary school is provided a
phone, tablet, gaming system, watch or even a toaster (just kidding),
once content is posted there is an impression of that content by
people that have access to it.
The Internet is a vast reservoir of information, but the ability to
tap into and communicate on a global scale comes with being
responsible and accountable. Many students in higher education
still are not mature enough to manage not just their Social Media
content, but other personal things that can influence their careers
before they actually start.
Young adults in higher education are influenced by their peers,
the media, families, personal interests, hormones, passions and
purposeful use or misuse of technology.
What goes on the Internet does not stay on the Internet, it is
viewed, watched, read, consumed and even downloaded and
screen captured. A person’s whole life, literally is being posted
from birth to death on platforms that are endless in digital
memory and access points.

Technology Jobs

A time line of events can be created
as the infant develops into a toddler,
the toddler develops into a youth and
the continuous growth and development
of life.
There are now ways to track and chart
the growing life cycle of people and
the mental and emotional affects are
not known.
Children must be taught to manage their Brands, because their
Brand represents them, just as in the “Old School” way of thinking
your “name” was valuable because it represented your word.
In the digital age your digital content represents your Brand and
that is who you are identified as.
Global history is written by those earning an education so they
can read and write, the ignorant have no say; they do not
possess the necessary skills to comprehend the value and empowerment
of language and language development. The ability to influence thinking
with content and collaborate on levels of intellect and intelligence.
Brands can be keys to open doors and allow connections with
like-minded people. Allowing growth and elevation to new levels
and directions.
Teaching higher education students the value and visibility of a
Brand is not a complex issue, it does take the ability to “see”
how a persons’ Brand influences others and makes an impression
that can last a life-time.
The summer months prove challenging because of the amount of
relaxation and vacation time. Higher education students are
more prone to post something because they are in relaxed modes
of comfort and not thinking about the impressions a photo or
a video will have. Being diligent and properly connected can
save a student from embarrassing photos and videos from
parties, gatherings, vacation destinations and summer hookups
that last a few weeks, but may have future consequences.
Social Media is a tool that can either be used for good or used
for bad, decisions should be made to determine how and when
content will be posted and where.

A Brand should be treated with
care, respect, honor, and safe
guarded. A Brand is your word
that identifies you and your
potential direction in life.
Higher Education Students
Build Your Brand
Build Your Impressions
manage your Brand and manage

the content that you post associated
with it and how you are associated with. It could mean the difference
between employment and unemployment.

Vision Keepers and New Town Success Zone – Transformative Community Engagement
by William Jackson
Member of the Social Media Team with NTSZ and VK

Vision Keepers and New Town Success Zone have made
transformative changes in the Jacksonville, Florida
community. Impacting individuals, families and the
potential generational challenges that are being faced.
There are resources and collaborations to strengthen
community unity, building entrepreneurism,
encouraging business ownership, access to business
capital and health related information with collaborations and
cooperation with medical professionals across Jacksonville.

There is access to resources and services that
help to provide investment and re-investment
opportunities to build and re-build diverse sections
of the community especially those classified as
in-need, under-serviced, economically stressed, poverty
stricken and other descriptions for challenged neighborhoods.

Business ownership, entrepreneurial methods, mental health
services, access to business capital, business
educational resources, training’s in social media,
web development and even partnerships with community
organizations both for profit and not for profit
are opening up. The availability of resources and services
that in many cases are lacking or unavailable.

Vision Keepers and New Town Success Zone collaborations,
cooperation and monthly meetings are strengthening
the building of small and medium size businesses.
The cultural, gender and ethnic diversity of the community
allows for growth and partnerships as never before seen.
Reaching out to the community using digital technologies,
word of mouth, media elements and even involving students
from the historic Edward Waters College, the oldest HBCU
in Florida.

Information is vital as each generation enters into a
culture of informational awareness and digital access.
Where those who have access to information also have
access to financial growth, economic stability, educational
enhancement and generational wealth.

Listed below are blogs written to inspire, engage, educate
and encourage continued growth in the Jacksonville community
especially for those communities that are economically
distressed. Programs are being developed that address
literacy, starting and running a business, digital access
to web development and social media platforms.

Vision Keepers and New Town Success Zone can be accessed
by Facebook pages, Instagram and the new web site.

Digital information is sharing information that empowers,
educates, engages and enlightens the community. Blogging
or writing is only part of the process to share information.
Social Media platforms supplement a web presence and allow
mobile digital access.

Below are links to blogs written by community engagers,
educators and consultants.

This is a video blog with Mr. Maxey that set the tone for
the expansion and growth of NTSZ and VK.
