Ok so if you’ve been following this blog from the beginning, you’ve read my many posts about jobs and the job search and all of that. At this point, you guys may be wondering what it is I actually do.
I work in social media! Sometimes referred to as digital marketing. I am the one sitting behind a computer all day, making posts and creating graphics in the hopes that someone will reward my efforts by liking or retweeting my posts.
I started working with Victoria’s Secret Pink at Rutgers and we used social media to promote our events and answer any questions people had. I really loved it but I didn’t yet know that social media was a viable career path.
After my year of unemployment, I started working at an agency that managed the social media and websites of different restaurants in NYC. It was a great experience and I learned a lot, but it was too chaotic of a place to work there long-term. After that job, I started working with at an up-and-coming website. While working there, I got another job at a magazine. This was super exciting to me because I’ve always wanted to work at a magazine.
I truly love social media and love seeing people react to my posts and helping to grow businesses.
Most people don’t even know that this a career option, and I’m so happy that I finally found something that I’m good at and enjoy.
