(Jan. 17, 2014) -- The UTSA Career Center, in partnership with the Air Force Reserve, will host a special presentation by Randi Zuckerberg, author of "Dot Complicated" and "Dot," former Facebook marketing executive and CEO of Zuckerberg Media. The presentation will be 4 to 5:30 p.m., Tueday, Jan. 28 in the H-E-B University Center Ballroom (1.106) on the Main Campus. A reception will immediately follow from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The presentation is free and open to the public.

Zuckerberg, an expert on social media and Web etiquette, will talk about her personal journey through Silicon Valley, including her experiences during the early days of Facebook, and her adventures over the last two years creating her own new media company, Zuckerberg Media.

She will explain how tech shaped her career and how technology is influencing every aspect of our lives today, including how we communicate with each other and the directions our careers take. She will emphasize the importance of taking classes and choosing majors in science, technology, engineering and math -- the STEM subjects.

"Randi Zuckerberg has had a fascinating career trajectory in the increasingly tech-focused age in which we live," said Audrey Magnuson, director of the UTSA Career Center. "There's much to learn from her success story. It is our hope that students will be able to take her advice on leveraging new technology and social media, and apply it to their own lives as they venture out to begin their careers."

In addition to founding and serving as CEO of social media firm Zuckerberg Media, Zuckerberg is the editor-in-chief of the newly launched modern lifestyle community, Dot Complicated, based upon her recent non-fiction book of the same name.

As an early executive at Facebook, Zuckerberg created and ran the social media pioneer's marketing programs. She led the company's U.S. election and international politics strategy and created Facebook's live streaming initiatives during the 2008 Presidential Inauguration. Zuckerberg was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2011 for her innovative coverage of the 2010 mid-term elections that integrated online and TV coverage in unique formats.

Since starting Zuckerberg Media, Zuckerberg has produced shows and digital content for BeachMint, the Clinton Global Initiative, Cirque du Soleil, the United Nations, Bravo and Conde Nast, with many other projects currently in the works.

Zuckerberg appears regularly on the "Today Show," "Katie" and CNBC, and also has appeared on CNN, "Good Morning America," Fox Business, Bloomberg News, and "ABC World News." She was a correspondent for the 2011 Golden Globe Awards and the World Economic Forum in Davos. She recently was appointed to the United Nations Global Entrepreneurs Council and the World Economic Forum's Global Council on Social Media.
