A commerce graduate and a Mcom 2nd year dropout student in 2014. Not from a marketing field but still working from the last 2 years as a Digital Marketing Executive in one of the IT companies in Nashik.
One thing I learn in these 2 years of the journey“ Be a marketer first then a Digital Marketer”
Not having an MBA or an Engineering degree makes me difficult to go for interviews, As I was not that qualified as they say for this post. So what I thought I should learn my own to get a job.
“Jiska koi nahi hota usko Youtube or Google hota hai”
So started searching for jobs by own, in an accountant or working under a CA. Believe me, I never got a call from any of these. I still tried harder, then I thought I should try in another field.
As it is getting difficult to get a job in my field. 2014,2015,2016 not having a single job in my hand.
2017 Started, I was thinking if I’m not getting a job I should try for small business of my own (Funding kahase aayegi) *optimistic*
Then again life got the change I got a call from a person telling me that we are starting a new company name as “Jugad”(Social media & Graphic design company)
Can you come for an Interview?
I was like okay, I was waiting for these opportunities, then I join I learn Facebook marketing. Work with local clients like Suvasini(Saree shop), Takle Jewellers (Jewellery shop), Ekbote furniture (Furniture shop) & also run a Fb campaign for KTHM college.
In this Digital Journey, I got to handle projects from both Local & International clients
I thought I should explore more now, by working in various other modules in Digital marketing ex: SEO
I learn SEO Start of 2018, I got a call from one of the IT companies in Nashik and I got selected.
The best way to crack interviews is to show the past companies’ results.
Learning without implementation is useless.
Now working in the same IT company where I join in 2018.
In this journey, I learn one thing that 2014,2015,2016 not getting a job is not a struggle actually, “Connecting the dots” I will say
If at that time if I got a job, I may an accountant at this time(I’m not saying accountant is not a good job)
But finding our passion is priceless.
