What's that got to do with this board? This isn't your personal blog faggot. You're most likely salty as fuck because she turned you down.

I don't know this girl at all. I'm just pointing out the fact that social media _____ isn't a real job.

Is this post social media?

Is it a job?
>>
>>1087125
Yes! You're hired!

>>1087124

Ok? We knew that. You're autistic as fuck.

>>1087139

How is it not a job?

If you collect a paycheck, it's a job.

SEO is a very high paying job. So is generating facebook likes and that kind of shit.

I know people working in SEO that used to make 6 digits a year, now they make 7. I hire them sometimes.

SEO is search engine, not necessarily social media.
>>
>>1087149

Most people working in SEO also work with social media and vice versa.

what if youre working the instagram for a finance based news site like reuters or bloomberg?
>>
>>1087099
they're making money doing it.
it's not a good *career choice*, but it's usually an okay job

Social Media is digital media in the communication world. You're just a fucking NEET who doesn't have a job nor held a job in your life. There is more jobs out there than le epin STEM memes.

This.

I had a temp job for Campbell's right after graduation. My job title was "Social Media Engineer". I'm not fucking joking. They called me an engineer, and I didn't even study engineering! This was my role: to increase brand awareness through various social media channels. That was it.

These guys paid me $22/hour, for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 9 months straight for doing what exactly? For writing dumb, vapid posts using Campbell's corporate social media accounts. I'm not kidding.

I sat on my ass, in a comfy chair, drinking coffee, while writing silly things on the internet under the name of Campbell's Soup Company. #campbellsoup #souplife #happinessinacan

Here's the funny thing, though. . . I don't even like canned soups. I don't even own a single social media account. I still got the job, though.

I quit because the job was getting too fucking boring, and I felt my brains oozing out of my ears from all of that time posting. It was an okay job, but not a career move. I was more than happy to have the Campbell's name on my CV, but I changed my job title to "Marketing Associate".

i feel bad for the people who have to maintain corporate social media accounts

should I make insightful posts so I can spare them a break

>>1087099
What do you mean it isn't a real job? What si your criteria for a real job?
>>
>>1087099
>getting paid a salary
>not a job

Bullshit job /= no job

Learn the difference

This misappropriation of the engineer title triggers me. Same with "software engineers," used to be that engineers were people who studied for and passed exams, like lawyers

I find this highly suspect, unless you really did got in at the very beginning of their awareness of social media.

I did freelance copywriting for local businesses while I was still in school. During my interviews, I stressed on how I could transfer my experiences into using social media. I provided a portfolio of my work. It was not a hard sell.

Besides, every kind of social media outlet has user friendly (a.k.a. easy to use) interface. There's not much of a learning curve.

When they brought up my lack of social media presence, I responded that I am fluent in Python and R (very basic stuff) programming languages, and that this reflects a willingness to learn, master, and apply new technology. This wasn't only answering their question, but also the question behind the question:
>"Is this guy tech savvy?"

A lack of social media doesn't necessarily reflect a lack of tech-savvy.

Hahahaha, Ryerson University. "Would you like fries with that?"
