Hi everyone! Well, since my last post A LOT, and I mean A LOT has happened! I officially landed my first FULL-TIME job since graduating from Berkeley back in September and I couldn't be more excited! A new career, a brand new opportunity, and just so much room to advance and grow! So what will I be doing you ask? I will be taking the title of Marketing Associate at a company who is an electromechanical components distributor. They are global and right now, they solely rely on the marketing department over in the UK. Since they are currently relying on them so much, they decided it was time to start a marketing department of their own on the American side, and it happens to be right here in New Jersey!
I have a lot to learn and I have a lot on my plate to get things off to a start for the marketing department, but I am ready to face any challenge that may come my way. I was really anxious to get started, so I started to research the company some more, get a feel for their parent company over in the UK, and just understand what the company is all about. One of the things they do to help with sales, are promotions for the sales people. As everyone in sales knows, you need to have some motivation to make a sale!
One of the major aspects to my position will be to come up with ideas for promotions and creative ideas on how to promote it! I will also be helping to launch their social media, which as many of you know, I LOVE TO DO! That means hitting the internet to set up a Facebook page, Twitter account, Blogging site, LinkedIn profile....all that fun stuff! I actually joined a group on LinkedIn called, Social Media Marketing, because there are a lot of people on their exchanging so many great ideas! I took some notes and then used that information to jot down some ideas of my own, in which I then forwarded over to my supervisor.
So there you have it! As I get started, I will be able to share more and more about my position, but I wanted to share my good news about this brandy new opportunity! Start date is set for March 12th, so only one week away! Eeeeeeeek! While I am sad to be saying goodbye to where I was interning & working part-time, I am happy to finally be taking all of my skills and advancing forward in my career! Like they say, one door closes & another door opens! I am very thankful for the opportunities I have had before this new job and I thank each and every person who has been involved in my life and helped me grow into the young woman I am today! THANK YOU!
