Hi. Nicole Hyman here. I’m a fourth year Journalism and Media Studies student at Rhodes University , South Africa. The aim of this blog is to explore the utility of the internet in a South African context and to determine how it is changing the way people work and earn.
I have set myself one main challenge for this blog : I want to see if I can find a job , using social media , for an unemployed Grahamstonian who would ordinarily rely on notice boards as a means of finding employment. Perhaps this will provide some insight into the utility of social media as a job seeking tool. I’ll be documenting my progress on this blog as well as on my Twitter page (My Twitter Page).
Please feel free to comment , criticize or make suggestions.
