Social Media Marketing Highlights
NAHJ Central Florida
As social media coordinator of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) Central Florida chapter starting in the 2020 term, I’ve been in charge of the local chapter’s social media efforts for our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.
Duties include publishing bilingual posts (in English and Spanish) on all three accounts informing our members of local and national chapter events, announcements, career and education opportunities.
