19 Aug Nayland graduate returns to share social media wisdom
Tim Hoffman is currently charting a new course in the IT sector, as a senior network engineer for social media platform Twitter. He visited the college last week to speak to students about his experiences in the sector since leaving Nayland.
In his advice to young IT entrepreneurs, Tim stressed the importance of industry recognised qualifications and accreditation in creating career options. In his own experience, some of the Cisco accreditations he was able to gain while studying at Nayland had been invaluable.
Tim also reinforced the value of a well-rounded education. He explained that interpersonal skills and the ability to self-promote and network are critical, especially in an environment as competitive as Silicon Valley.
Tim is at the forefront of a dynamic industry, with massive accomplishments behind him and a huge future ahead of him. Dream big and work hard!
