I’ve never thought that I would be working in an agency but here I am today, a digital marketer at ALQ Creative.
Of course, occasionally, hiccups happen on the job. It’s inevitable. Life in the creative or digital agency is fast paced and can be ruthless. But still, I love what I do.
As Confucious once said: Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.
Hahaha! Well, work is work and we put plenty of effort in what we do so let’s get to it. Here are reasons why I love my job:
I Never Get Bored
There are always things to do. From conceptualizing to putting the ideas at work. Doing test runs and looking at errors or scrutinizing each other’s work because we want the best for each other. Due to the way we work, I get to learn something new every day. It’s hard to be bored when you are passionate at what you do.
I Get To Meet Different Types Of People
We get visitors all the time and they’re all with different personalities. Some you enjoy being in the company of, some you enjoy just looking at the way they talk. These people vary from clients, influencers, and people who want to partner with us. OH! And we get random visitors too!
The Sense Of Achievement
This one goes without saying… One of the many projects we worked on allowed us to educate and uplift people. On top of that, we get to help others who are in need. And that’s just one of the many.
Going through the whole process can be thrilling but the end result is usually worth every ounce of effort. #latenightsintheoffice
Being Able To Do Random Stuff
At times when we are finished with our tasks, we get to do random stuff. Most of the time, we end up trying to generate new ideas for… well, anything, really.
People Think I’m A Wizard
From migrating websites to getting them SEO’d. People think I can do almost anything as long as I have the laptop and internet connection. This might sound ridiculous but they really do.
Having worked as a freelance prior to this, I’d say both jobs have their ups and down, pros and cons but working as a team really excites me and it gets things moving faster.
