Discussion Topics

Task Type: Elective | Points Value: 0.5-3 points per post


There is a private Facebook group where you and fellow Gleim Campus Reps can network and ask each other for advice. In that group, Discussion Topics are posted. By commenting on those posts, you can earn 0.5-2 points per post, depending on the quality of your contribution. The amount of points given is up to the discretion of the Campus Rep Coordinator. To join the group, you must first add the Campus Rep Coordinator on Facebook. You won’t be able to find the group on Facebook because it’s hidden from the public. After your friend request is approved, the Coordinator will invite you to join the group.

Additionally, there is also an exclusive LinkedIn Group called Gleim Connect where discussion topics can be posted. You can find the list of topics in the link provided below. You can also suggest a topic to discuss using the blank field in the form.
