“There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.”
Like many fresh graduates, my ultimate goal after graduation is to find a job. I was so focused on submitting applications online and figuring out what I want to do in the future. As a result, I wasn’t able to cherish my graduation moment.
A week after graduation, I went to my first job interview and immediately got accepted as a Public Relations Officer/Supervisor. However, I pondered about it deeply, “Is this really what I want?” “Will I be able to grow in this field?” and many more thoughts that led me to reject my first job offer.
A few weeks after, I learnt that Carl Ocab Digital Marketing was looking for a Social Media Manager, and without a doubt, I sent my application. Just a few hours later, I got an invite for the interview. The day came and I was really losing hope because it wasn’t just me who applied for the position. I told myself that I’d just find another job, so a few days after my interview, I started looking for other jobs. But after a few hours, I got the job offer email.
My job may not be as hard compared to others, but it’s definitely not easy, too. Everyday, I will have to come up with fresh and relevant content, learn consumer behavior, and continuously develop social media marketing strategies as online trends are fast-paced. I have to become more analytical and creative each passing day.
I still have a lot to learn– everyday is a challenge. But as long as I am determined to learn and succeed, I know I’ll be able to overcome whatever comes my way.
