Day to Day

Each day consists of me working on many different projects. I manage PBS SoCaL's online presence including website and social media accounts so I'm constantly making sure we have new, relevant, timely content. I update web content, ingest new videos, develop social media posts, promote PBS programming, analyze web analytics and write the program highlights e-newsletter. I love being able to create and share PBS related content on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

By far the best way for a college student to gain experience is to intern at companies in the industry / field you are interested in working. This allows you to experience the day-to-day activities at a company and get a sense if you like working in that field. Try and intern with more than one company so you can start building a greater understanding of what you enjoy doing for a career. For social media positions, you will want to develop other skills on top of your social media knowledge.
