10 Facebook pages you should follow about Business Management
For students pursuing a business management degree, it might sometimes feel like the homework never ends. Social media diversions can deliver the break they need. Browsing Facebook and chattering with old high school friends isn’t necessarily productive, though. Here is a list of 10 Facebook pages that will help students take a break from studies without suffering the guilt of spending hours surfing aimlessly and being unproductive.
A2Z Business Management: Pick the brains of folks who bring a wealth of customer service, sales, business management, supply chain management, IT, bookkeeping, e-commerce and marketing experience to the conversation. A2Z is a California-based company, and simply listening in on bits of their Facebook chatter can help a business management student earn some “extra credit” on the side.
AOL Jobs: Getting your business management degree prepares you for the job market. Connecting with AOL Jobs will help you prepare for what to expect when you get there. On its Facebook page, AOL Jobs shares links to important job market-related news stories of the day, and invites dialogue from business managers who have valuable insights to offer.
Business Insider: Life can’t be all studying, right? Find a diversion from the classroom without straying too far from your focus by following the musings of Business Insider. The reporting and aggregating giant – nearly 1 million like its Facebook page – offers up links to satisfy the business and pleasure sides of your life.
Business Management Daily: You may not be a business manager yet, but you plan to be one day. Business Management Daily talks to Facebook followers as if they are, imparting words of workplace wisdom that will pay off down the road. Conversations range from office management etiquette to workplace legislation and everything in between.
Careerealism: Students today are job candidates tomorrow, so it’s never too early to start preparing. Careerealism starts the conversation. Understanding some of the practical issues of your job search – such as best practices in resume writing and preparing for an interview – is nearly as important as the career training you’re getting in the classroom.
Centura College: Associate of Applied Science Degrees in Business with a Management Concentration that career-minded individuals need are available at select Centura College’s campuses and Bachelor of Science Degrees in Business with a Management Concentration are available at the Centura College, Virginia Beach Campus.

Keep abreast of everything from campus news to job market trends, and jump into the conversation to develop potentially valuable relationships with people on campus.
Corn on the Job: Whether you’re a freshman just starting out or a senior nearing graduation, the day will come (if it already hasn’t) when you officially enter the job market pool. When that day arrives, it never hurts to have a little help on your side, whether in the form of cover letter writing or mock phone interviewing. The folks at Corn on the Job can help; their Facebook page can point to issues you may not have considered.
SCORE: A nonprofit dedicated to using education and mentoring to help small businesses get started, get growing and succeed. Their Facebook conversations tackle the important day-to-day business management issues that will one day be important to any future office or small-business manager.
