You may be wondering who I am, what I do for a living, and what is my “personal brand” (okay, probably not the last one in those exact words, but I’m sure some aspects of it are on your mind. No? Well now it is).
I do social media for a living. What sets me apart from my competition is that I have a journalism degree and, since content is king, my ability to communicate effectively comes in handy. I also enjoy photography and finding a good story to share, which is great for content creation.
To stand out, I am continuing to learn and grow in my profession. I am earning my Social Media Certificate from Algonquin College and have recently started using Sprout Social, which is helping me with strategy and planning.
My colleagues would say my best trait is my winning personality and humbleness (I kid, I kid). But in all seriousness, I would say my best trait at work is my ability to work well with everyone in all departments on various projects.
What I am most proud of is that a full-time social media position was created for me. I truly love what I do and enjoy going to work every day, so I am very grateful for the opportunity to do what I do.
What is your profession and what do you love most about it?
