The one lingering question that followed me throughout college was what I planned to do once I graduated. “What’s your five year plan?”— a question that I always dreaded being asked. Heck, I didn’t even know what my plan was going to be the next week.
Once I graduated and moved back home to Atlanta, I accepted a position to work as a Social Media Ambassador for Imagine Media. Working for Imagine has been one of the most eye-opening experiences for me so far. Prior to the Ambassador Program, I had zero hands-on experience working for a marketing agency and hardly any experience with marketing tools. However, it has taught me how to work in a variety of marketing platforms that will be useful for my future career. I learned that gaining knowledge and challenging yourself will lead you in the right direction.
My favorite part about being an Ambassador is getting to work alongside the Account Coordinators. Imagine Media has a very cozy and welcoming atmosphere which made me feel comfortable to start tackling tasks right off the bat. The Account Coordinators really helped me dive into their partners and paved the way for me to create content on all social media channels as well as embracing each partner’s voice. From having the cutest office dog (Gunnar) to surprise pumpkin spice lates, Imagine Media has mastered the perfect office morale. Not only do the employees push me professionally, they’re interested in my personal goals as well which helps keep a balanced schedule in and outside of work. There is no other place like it and I am so thankful for this opportunity. I can’t wait to see what comes next in my marketing career!
