How to Get Your Foot In the Door Without the "Right" Experience 

Posted by Anne Holub on 1/17/18 1:21 PM

Whether you're just starting out or looking to change up your career path, finding ways to talk about your experience, when it may not be directly relevant to your job, is key to getting your foot in the door. You might look at new ways to discuss past jobs or transferable skills, or discover new ways to boost your experience level outside of your 9 to 5. Either way, don't let a lack of "past work" get you down when you want to make a change on your "future work."

Tried and True Tips to Be a Low-Stress Freelancer

Posted by Anne Holub on 12/8/17 4:07 PM

Back in the days when I had just one job to think about every day, I often thought, "How would I love to be a freelancer just picking up a job here and there and doing what I want." Little did I realize, when I became a fulltime freelance writer, how wrong my preconceived notions of the freelance lifestyle would be. Not to say I don't love it (because I do), but it is very easy to let freelancing stress you out beyond belief.

The line between marketing and strategy have disappeared in the consumer-driven "Age of Awareness" that denotes today. 

Marketing strategists figured out that beating competition requires intimate and exact knowledge of customers' needs and wants. This insight would ensure their strategies – the capabilities they invested in – would actually meet an intended customer need better than competitors. In effect, the customer-centric strategy emerged with purpose and thus, the need for a highly skilled customer-centric marketing team.
