The U.S. Postal Service and its Relevance to College Students
Posted by darleenr
Okay, so you may be saying to yourself, enough already with the Postal Service. Yet honestly when I read we were to create a survey in my Web research methods class I thought “Great, what a perfect way to find out the relevancy of the US Postal Service to college students.”
A survey is the perfect way to gather data from a specific age groups, (college students) which is a group the US Postal Service does not seek out or target. I want to know how the college students of Florida University enrolled in social media studies views the importance of the US mail and how often they use it.
Our task was to use one of three survey services, OpinionLab, Qualtrics or SurveyMonkey to create a survey. I chose SurveyMonkey because I had heard all positive comments about the service before and it’s used by the USPS to varying degrees. I thought this a perfect opportunity to familiarize myself with the service.
So let me apologize ahead of time to my fellow students as I write about the USPS all the time and yes, all of my survey questions pertain to the Postal Service. You must understand that working for the USPS is more than a job it’s a way of life. Therefore choosing the USPS as my subject matter makes perfect sense as I swim in the fishbowl known as the USPS Ocean. Often times my only interactions are with other USPS fish big and small and reporters who are interested in the mailing and shipping industry.
So I want to know from folks other than the usual subjects on how they view the postal service and respectfully ask that anyone reading this blog post take the time to take the survey by clicking here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LDP8HY3
Looking forward to getting some results, hopefully they will be positive, but even if they are not I still would love to know what my fellow students at the University of Florida think of the US Postal Service.
My next post will discuss the results….but I need you to take the survey to accomplish that task.
