Our scholarship is going to be awarded to the individual who best shows their understanding of the importance of an online presence and how it shapes and impacts businesses today.
In today’s competitive environment, the majority of businesses and companies have an aggressive online presence. Even employees who aren’t directly related to managing this online site need to understand its importance, and how it impacts the business as a whole.
Regardless of if you are running a cash register, selling a new product via a cold call or working in the field, understanding how an online presence helps businesses grow and develop is imperative, as this is a factor that will impact businesses today, and in the future.
With the above information in mind, students interested in applying for this scholarship should submit a 1,500-word essay on the importance of an online presence and even show examples of how it has impacted businesses in the past. Highlighting examples of both successes and failures in the essay is highly recommended, as this will help the selection board determine who fully grasps the concept.
