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".
>>1087809 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.
