Fota Island Resort is on LinkedIn

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

About Me

My name is Sinéad and I am on work placement for five months in Fota Island Resort Hotel Cork, as a Marketing Associate. As a first time blogger bear with me whilst I tell you a little about how I have been getting on so far.

On my first day I discovered that I would be spending the five months of my work placement with Fota Island Spa and their marketing department. I will admit (albeit unwillingly) I had never been to a Spa before! So not only did I have no experience in beauty or working with a luxury spa, but I also had little to no experience, although a lot of interest in Fitness, which was to be my main area of responsibility, in particular ensuring that the social media is kept up to date for the Fota Island Spa and Fota Fitness.

Not the biggest fan of social media, I have nonetheless been keen to develop my social media skills, so when handed the added responsibility of managing the Fota Island Resort LinkedIn account, I was eager to get going.

LinkedIn was new for Fota Island Resort and for me, and I was tasked with creating, managing and developing this, growing the interactions which Fota Island Resort has with the LinkedIn community. Determined to prove that LinkedIn is a useful tool for not only people, but for businesses as well, I began in my mission to show that if you are involved and committed LinkedIn can prove to be a great resource.

Next week I will be writing about where to begin when setting up your company page!
