Before pursuing marketing, I worked as a licensed clinical social worker. That experience gives me unique insight into what makes people tick.
Okay, maybe that's not what you're saying. But you should be.
A social work background seems almost tailor-made for marketing.
☑ Over the course of my education, I spent 7 years studying people- how they think, what their struggles are, and why they behave the way they do.
☑ In grad school, I hated my statistics and research methods classes. Now I find myself thanking God I've got a clue when I research customer data and plan surveys.
☑ 10 years of multiple daily client interviews. The goal? Gathering information and understanding motivations.
☑ My persuasion skills were polished selling the unsellable- rehab or anger management, anyone?
