Shoutout to @CareerRookie, @DukeCareers, and @justcameo!

It goes without saying that NACE members are the absolute greatest people out there; their drive and enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me. While the #NACE12 chat on Twitter continues to heat up, a few people have taken their excitement for the NACE 2012 Conference & Expo to a whole new level and they deserve some recognition for it!

Last week NACE debuted the 2012 Pre-Conference Video in hopes of getting everyone psyched for the big event. The staff members from the Duke University Career Center then posted a video reply in the form of this gem right here, check it out:

I love it! I gotta give it up to these folks, they totally rocked this video! You can tell them how awesome you thought it was on Twitter, @DukeCareers and @justcameo. You can also tweet your own reasons for being excited for the conference by using hashtag #NACE12.

I also have to share this great blog post by Nathan Lippe, the Director of, called5 Top Reasons You Can’t Miss NACE (Aside From Location). Nathan, you are making the NACE Marketing Team’s job super easy and we appreciate it! You can find Nathan and his company on Twitter at @CareerRookie.

A Look Back at #NACE11

Did you know there are only 49 days until the NACE 2012 Conference & Expo? The NACE staff is working very hard to make sure this year will be the best event ever! This may be a tall task, since the 2011 Conference & Expo in Dallas was such a success, but we’re up to the challenge and we know you are going to have a great experience this year in Las Vegas.

For those of you who didn’t get to attend in 2011 – or if you just want to relive the great memories – check out the NACE 2011 Conference & Expo Recap video below, and get excited for #NACE12!

Hi everyone, I’m Ashley! I am the Marketing Assistant here at the National Association of Colleges and Employers, located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. One of my main job functions is keeping you all connected to NACE by managing our social media outlets. Last year you may have seen me running around the Gaylord Texan – cell phone and video camera in hand – as I tweeted, texted, Facebooked, and digitized all of the great learning and networking opportunities attendees were taking part in. This year at the NACE 2012 Conference & Expo at Paris Las Vegas I will also be managing a new and exciting channel to keep you connected and informed – a conference blog! If you’re reading this post then you’ve already found it, good job! Remember to bookmark the address or follow along via RSS or Email (Sign up in the box on the right side of the page). As we get closer to the big event I will post announcements, reminders, countdowns, and maybe even some exclusive content for our blog readers! During the conference you can check in for up-to-the-minute news and information, including pictures, video, audio, and more!

There are so many new learning and networking opportunities at #NACE12 and I can’t wait for us all to experience them together. Whether you are a NACE conference veteran, a new attendee, speaker, sponsor, exhibitor or if you just happen to wander in off the Las Vegas strip, I know you are going to have an amazing time at the NACE 2012 Conference & Expo and I look forward to meeting you all in person!
