4 Min Read. |

Social Media is fun. But Social Media Marketing is just awesome!

Wouldn’t it be great if you are asked to spend all day every day on Social Media and paid for that?

I would certainly love it. I think you too will, well I doubt anyone won’t!

But, getting such a job is a luxury that not all can afford. That’s for the unprepared though. If you have the talent, will and the training, working on promoting ideas, personalities, brands or opinions on Social Media is not a big ask.

Shilpi who worked as a Consultant Geologist and Asst. Teacher for 7 years cracked up a Social Media Marketer’s position in a span of 6 months. Not only that, she now is a Certified Digital Marketer.

After working as a teacher and a geologist for 7 years, Shilpi took a career sabbatical of another 7 years for her family. During her break, she started writing blogs and articles on different websites. But that was not enough.

She restarted her career as a Freelance Writer in May 2017. That was with the help of Team JobsForHer. After that, she came across an opportunity of Marketing Intern at Fuzia while scrolling her Instagram Feed. And ever since, she is working as a specialist Social Media Marketer.

Shilpi has made an ambitious come back to the working arena and plans to make it even bigger. I caught up with her to get a piece of her ideas and experiences. Talking to her was just as awesome as the exciting work she does.

Let’s get into her story.

Mir: You choose to do Certified Digital Marketing Master’s Course with Digital Vidya, what made you take this decision?

Shilpi Shah: Since I was involved in Social Media Marketing at Fuzia so in order to excel at my work & upgrade my skills, I thought of pursuing the CDMM Course and trust me it was the best decision of my life.

Mir: Why did you choose Digital Vidya’s course?

Shilpi Shah: As I don’t come from an IT background, My husband and I actually researched a lot over the Internet before taking up the course.

Mir: How did the online format of delivery help your learning? Was it more convenient as you did not have to travel?

Shilpi Shah: Yes, the online format of delivery was very much convenient, not only on the travel part but also due to weekdays/weekend class modules. It became very easy for me to attend all the classes and I did not have to travel much leaving my child behind.

Mir: How has the course helped you in your career?

Shilpi Shah: The CDMM Course has definitely helped me. Apart from the course curriculum, there were case studies and assignments that helped me in getting practical exposure. However, I think real-life problem-solving techniques can only be learned when you start working.

Mir: In order to successfully learn a new skill through a professional course, what is the best way to go about your training?

Shilpi Shah: Research well and choose the best course as per your own understanding/availability/requirement. Don’t follow any advice blindly. Just because things worked well for someone doesn’t mean that it will work for you too.

Mir: For someone who’s looking at a full time or part-time job or an internship, what approach would you advise?

Shilpi Shah: Get a job in the first place rest everything can be learned later on. Secondly, give your 200% even though 100% is sufficient for every task. Bring passion to work!

Mir: Rate your overall experience with Digital Vidya?

Shilpi Shah: Digital Vidya is doing a great job of providing the right knowledge. Team Digital Vidya including the teachers, coordinators, placement support is extremely helpful and understanding. I would rate Digital Vidya an eight out of ten.
