I manage the website and social media for an organization that helps counselors and students.
A team of experts at my work creates cool resources for counselors and students, and I write about what they do so that we can share it on our website, social media, and more.
Once I found what I liked about my job, I did it for all sorts of places! My friends who are musicians or comedians had me help them promote their shows, and I used those writing and design samples in my portfolio to apply for jobs. This helped me specialize in tasks I actually wanted to do.
"I heard that skills like writing or designing led to job paths that were too competitive, and to find something more stable."
