Productive self-paced environment focused on employee skills
Social Media & Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) – Ashland, OR – July 30, 2016
This job allowed me to self-pace large scale design projects with input from both co-workers and management fields. Because I was able to frequently work with peers, I was able to create designs that had both the required information for events and incorporated their vision.
This was very helpful when I became the main person to renovate the school's housing portion of the school website. By making sure I was keeping the vital information intact and refreshing how it aesthetically looked, I was able to work with the management to create something both beneficial and stylistically appealing.
This was also a useful skill in running the housing's social media. Because I maintained consistent contact as the face of the housing pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, I was able to get important information to current students, prospective students, and parents in a way that was befitting of the platform.
The job taught me a lot about working with people, rather than working around people, as well as utilizing basic coding and digital art skills in a practical environment.
While the job was difficult, as it was a student position and therefore I worked where I lived and went to school, it taught me a lot and allowed me to further the skills I had coming into it.
