IF THESE SOUND LIKE YOU, YOU COULD BE A GOOD FIT:
You’re a people person
You can start a conversation with just about anyone and aren’t intimidated by picking up the phone and asking for what you need. You’re outgoing and enthusiastic but know how to tune out the world to get things done. You’re great at communicating both in person and in writing.
You like being a support to others
You enjoy being given a list of tasks and implementing them with a team on your side. Knowing that you’re performing tasks that are contributing to a bigger plan gives you the warm-n-fuzzies.
You love social media
You enjoy the marketing side of social media. Creating content calendars excites you and posting, scheduling and interacting with other brands online on a daily basis is something you enjoy.
You’re known for organization and planning
Your friends and family know you for taking an idea and thoroughly executing it. You enjoy taking a complex situation and breaking it into bite-sized pieces, timelines and needs.
You love to learn, are a sponge for new information and opportunities, and can see yourself growing with a great company for years to come. You’re known as a positive, enthusiastic person.
You know how to relax and have fun, but you take your role seriously. Your ideas are welcome, but you are also open to feedback and trying new techniques.
