Assistant Store Manager at Microsoft and Owner of Nour Images
I am currently a junior in college majoring in Business Accounting and minoring in Public Relations. My interest has always been in social media, blogging, content management (I love writing), and a little bit of graphic design. I love being able to impact and influence other's lives through one of the most powerful tools we have today - social media.
However, I'm not sure how to go about this career. From my understanding, a lot of social media positions require a background in marketing and advertising - which some times requires a lot of strategizing and pitching. As creative as I am, I also enjoy a sense of routine and stability; I don't want to always have to meet marketing/advertising goals, as I find that to be extremely stressful.
Furthermore, I'm not sure what position(s) in the field would enable me to continue growing. It seems like Social Media Coordinator/Manager is just about as high as you can climb - and I want to pursue something that'll allow for me to make major advances in both a financial and skills standpoint. I was thinking maybe I could try to aim for a Communications Manager position?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
