The term, “Your typical workplace”, does not remotely fit the description of what it’s like as a Jerrick Media employee. Heck, what do I know. I’ve been self employed up until last year, making Jerrick Media my first employer.
I was brought on to the team as social media manager, which has developed into an array of responsibilities, ranging from the predictable, social media account management, to managing the video dept., optimizing the internal communication of the firm, and becoming a content creator. At first, this seemed a bit odd, moving from seat to seat. But, if you were to ask me about the detailed workflow of any department in the firm, I could give you the answer. I see the value in that.
The people are a creative, diligent, and cooperative bunch, who motivate me to push the limits and give my all to the betterment of the company. The wages are not fantastic, but after all, it is a start up. I fully believe that all who make it to the end will be compensated appropriately.
