Being new at anything is an odd mixture of excitement, nerves, eagerness, and a tiny bit of apprehension. This is my first week at InSync, and I feel like I'm about to jump off the high diving board at the pool. My secret (shhh, don't tell!) is that I'm not a learning industry expert, and I'm learning this job as a marketing team assistant from the ground up.
I'll be learning how to write posts for social media, communicate with university clients, and generally help with whatever is needed. I’m incredibly excited for the chance to learn something completely new but also a little afraid that I will mess something up, and cause a marketing emergency (whatever that could be).
It goes without saying that I’m incredibly excited for this professional development opportunity. I know I’ll build my marketing skills through hands-on practice. In my first week alone, I’ve had a crash course in Adobe Connect, HubSpot, Outlook, and Skype. I feel like I’ve received a whole new education in acronyms related to the virtual classroom, to say nothing of confusing The Hub with HubSpot in a meeting (whoops!).
