Impressed and inspired by San Jose State's EOP students! Special thanks to #SJSUEOP for inviting me to keynote their Networking event!! "EOP offers academic advising and retention services to first generation, low-income college students to aid them in their goal of succeeding at SJSU and beyond their degree."

Really excited to speak to 200 SJSU EOP students tomorrow for the #SJSUEOP #Networking event taking place at San Jose State's MLK Library in Room 225!

"Research states that as many as 70% of jobs are gained through networking. But, what does this mean and more importantly, how do you network to gain a job?

This event provides you with the opportunity to network and expand your contacts. Participants will leave with the knowledge of how to network, leads on potential jobs or internship opportunities, and contacts."

Oakland Digital was invited to West Oakland Middle School to speak about the importance of #digitalliteracy and to help 7th graders explore potential #careers in graphic #design and #technology. As a group exercise, students shared messages of #inspiration through hash tags including: #StaySmartandLoveArt #OakTreeofLife #BeInspired #Dream #StayInSchool #StopFightingAndStartWriting #StopThugsFromDoingDrugs #StopTheKilling #InspireOakland and our favorite, #LoveIsRealInOakland.
