Bachelor of Business (Marketing)
Role at VTWO?
It’s loosely defined as Community Management. I say this because since I started, I’ve been given the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of what goes on at VTWO, from strategy to content creation and design.
Favourite part of job?
No day is the same. I could go from planning an in depth monthly strategy and budget for a client one day, to being on a video and photoshoot the next. At the same time, I’m given the freedom to come up with my own ideas which keeps me constantly thinking.
Combine that with a motivated and fun group of people to work with and you end up with an environment that doesn’t evoke the usual monotonous feel of most workplaces. When going to work doesn’t feel like chore, it puts you in a good place mentally and the flow on affect from that has a positive impact on all aspects of life.
Most challenging part of your role?
The fast paced nature of agency life. At times it can be daunting to cater to multiple clients who all have varying needs, wants and objectives. For many people this can be a massive roadblock.
However, I’ve found that heading into these situations willingly is the only way to grow and improve.
Most important piece of tech you have?
It’s a close tie between my phone and laptop. Both are important necessities at VTWO. When I’m not at work, I try to limit the amount of screen time I have, which is usually unsuccessful.
TV, YouTube, Netflix or Stan?
Netflix. I generally only use YouTube when there’s a specific video I want to watch and I find myself watching less and less television every day.
Your daily process?
On a workday, I generally spend my commute listening to a podcast – the majority of the time it’s either Joe Rogan or NBA related. Once I get to work, I catch up on any relevant news in the marketing and tech world and then spend time planning out my day/week. Throughout the day I try to not spend too much time on one task. Not only do you become disinterested, but the quality of work you produce tends to decrease exponentially.
After work I dedicate time to some form of physical activity, whether it be gym, running or riding. For me, exercise is more of a mental stimulus. The physical benefits are secondary. After a good night’s sleep, it’s back to the grind the next day.
