Hate Your Job?
Think "Nano Degree" From Udacity
OCTOBER 24TH 2017 | POSTED BY: BRETT R. SMITH
..I used to work for the communication giant AT&T. I was doing great at my job but felt I wasn’t getting the return for the effort I was putting in. Frustrated, I quit my job of eight years and decided to carve my own path as a freelancer. But what kind?
Every day since quitting my full-time job, I have tried to make ends meet with various projects and fillers. I have been looking for something that takes my already learnt skills in sales and marketing to combine it with my passions for creating media and putting it on the world wide web. I spent hundreds of hours teaching myself content strategy, HTML Code, Social Media management, and email marketing. I wanted to learn it all on my own or figure out which one I was best at so I could start making money. I was overwhelmed...
One day I ran into an old friend, a director of marketing for a university who put things in perspective for me. She said, “You’re not a web designer, a social media manager, or a email marketer, you’re all of those things, a digital marketer and you need more education.” That statement really settled in and simplified things for me.
Because of that, I took digital marketing more seriously and investigated what it would take to be a skilled digital marketer.
I sought after training and education to round out my skills and found Udacity’s Digital Marketing Nano Degree program. Time, Money, and credibility were all factors in my choosing my education. From my research the Digital Marketing Nano Degree was the best option for me, my time, and finances.
Now that I’m in the program, it’s given me the framework to put it all together. I’ve already applied some best practices to my business and have been satisfied with the content I’m learning.
By gaining skills to move forward with my business, I feel more confidant and less like an imposter when making my pitches. Learning things on your own is great but to have great coaches and instruction to back your pitch is game changing. If digital marketing isn’t your thing, Udacity has several in demand Nano Degree Programs and free courses to progress your career. Check out at www.udacity.com for more information.
