About Marissa Hermann

Networking for Success


Networking is critical in our day and age. We are constantly bombarded with advertisements, emails, status updates and sales pitches; it is vital to maintain personal relationships with professionals to stand out from the crowd. Business networking is not a new idea, put simply; it’s how we build trusting relationships with people of similar interest and talents in order to form a bond that is beneficial to both parties.

Does Social Media Really Matter?


When applying for jobs, it is vital that you keep an eye on your social media presence, yes… it does matter! Everything you post whether it’s on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn, will most likely be seen by possible employers. Before they hire you, they want to be 100% sure that you are the person you seem to be. If your social media pages show them otherwise, you will get terminated from the job opportunity. Inappropriate images and foul-mouthed status updates should not be present.

Be Led By Your Passion, Not By The Media


In our day and age, the media has a considerable impact on our society. As much as we may try to ignore the fact, we are influenced by the shows we watch, the movies we see and the things we hear more than we even notice. The media is known for glamorising that which is not glamorous. It has been blamed for things like its influence on smoking behaviours and violence in our society. Many people however, forget to see its less obvious impacts. Included in the long list, is its false glamorisation of careers.
