Yes, it has been a while since my last posting. Life has many twists and turns. First, there was one organization that appeared ready to make me a job offer, but after two months of emails, they decided to go with another candidate.
The digital marketing practice has grown, but again, clients over-promise regarding billable hours and underdeliver. The positive is that they leave great reviews of the work that was done from their businesses.
Again going through some self-reflection, I did invest in myself and take a self-discipline course. The return created a compound effect professionally. Now I am Google Adwords Certified and completed another Python class. When you try to multitask, you set yourself for failure. Taking one course at a time by creating a time block before I started my client work for the day was a win. Now I am working with clients who want Adwords Analysis and campaign setup.
Lastly, I interviewed for a Digital Marketing Analyst position at a local company two weeks ago. All three conversations I had with leadership were fantastic. Over a week ago, I was contacted by human resources to have another phone interview with the Director of Finance. I told the person I am available. Right now, I have not had a reply. I was told in the initial interviews I would be notified either way.
I even followed up today because I need to plan out my week. Yes, it takes time.
