It’s Branding & Advertising Week on BTR, and Third Eye Weekly has two very special guests to give you some insight into the corporate world.
First, BTR managing editor Margaret Jacobi speaks with Renée Gosline, a MIT Sloan School of Management professor who teaches an MBA course in branding. With social media recruitment on the rise, how much should one worry about his/her social media presence or rather, “personal brand” when trying to snag that dream job?
Later, Third Eye Weekly’s very own Matthew DeMello sits down with David Cobb, a former Green Party presidential candidate and a spokesperson for the Move to Amend Coalition, an organization questioning the inalienable human rights that should be extended to corporations.
David Cobb and Matt discuss the constitutionality of the now infamous Citizens United ruling, Super PACs and what role political advertising will play in the upcoming presidential election.
Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Team NYC-Urbana 2008 and their winning group piece “N1663R.” If you’d like to submit a poem to be played on the show, feel free to send an MP3 to thirdeyeweekly at gmail dot com, but do keep sound quality in mind!
Without further ado …
