You may remember back in September, I wrote about a paper that I had co-authored with my internship supervisor and a fellow PhD student in Germany. This paper was presented by my colleagues at the IFIP Conference on e-Business, e-Services and e-Society (I3E) in September 2016 and was nominated for an award for one of the best papers at the conference. I was unable to attend the conference due to PhD related commitments in Croatia, but was pleased to hear the news of our prize-winning paper.
The paper has also received nearly 700 downloads since its publication too!
Not only has the paper won first prize and increased in popularity in terms of downloads, it has been noticed by Napier’s Media and Communications team. They have kindly offered to write an article about our research findings and you can find the article below.
The article entitled ‘Following role models on social media can help with major career decisions – if you’re authentic’ can be found here: http://www.napier.ac.uk/about-us/news/following-role-models-on-social-media-can-help-with-major-career-decisions-if-youre-authentic
The article focuses on some of the more practical implications of the research, but we do recommend reading the article too so you can see the practicalities for yourself!
