Seattle native Bianca Vaccarini recently graduated from SDSU with a degree in public relations. For fun she writes a fashion blog called The In Between Girls and she works for Investing House. When she entered her final semester she realized that she was missing a few units, so she signed up for two courses in the Digital and Social Media program – Advanced Social Media and Driving Traffic to Your Website.
Out of the two courses, Vaccarini says her best takeaway was exploring the fundamentals of SEO. She says, “I learned how to do title tags, headers, and how the search engines work. Since I’m a blogger I was really excited for the class because I was able to apply that to what I do for fun and maybe get some more notoriety for it. After I took the class I went into my blog and switched some things out and made my blog more SEO friendly.”
Vaccarini not only increased her digital knowledge but also made some great connections. She says, “From a networking point of view, it was really great to meet people who actually graduated from SDSU and got a job in the field they wanted.”
