I work in a B2B software company, and am responsible for all marketing execution, and also planning of our marketing activities (in cooperation with two other team members). My work consists of creating content, arranging webinars and events, creating email newsletters and user newsletters, managing our company website and social media, and also planning of digital advertising, and also some basic graphic design tasks. Occasionally, I take care of some HR and invoicing tasks.
On a usual day, I start my day around 9am by going through my emails and checking my agenda for the day. My tasks vary a lot depending on the week, month, and day. Some days are obviously more busy than others. However, on an average day I might have a meeting or max two, either internally with my team members, or for example with some partner (related to advertising, marketing etc). I spend a lot of time doing independent work; writing, reading, planning, using the company software, sending emails etc. My average work day ends usually around 5pm, and I rarely work overtime.
Its versatile and interesting, and consists both of independent and group/team work. It includes both routine tasks, and the possibility to develop and learn something new. That fits me well. I don't get bored, and develop constantly in my work. On the other hand, the work isn't very stressful or too demanding, which is good.
Sometimes the schedule might be really tight, and you have to be able to prioritize and work well under pressure. However, not every day is like that, so I don't consider it as a problem.
By working during your studies, gaining experience in different companies, teams and positions. By being active and learning from others and also independently. Practice is the best teacher.
