Deadlines motivate you, and at the end of the day - you find design as not only an outlet for creativity but a way to connect artists and fans and enhance experiences in an industry you love.
2. Label Hotshot
aka Record Label Assistant
You understand that releasing music is an art in itself. Paperwork, administrative operations and organizational systems don't scare you; in fact, you find dotting the i's and crossing the t's gratifying. You look forward to regularly speaking and working with artists directly. Pitching in with the coordination of creative assets and social media initiatives is a pleasure. You're favorite part is getting the opportunity to report back to artists with stellar results after a hard day's work.
3. Marketing Wizard
aka Marketing Coordinator
You thrive in team settings. You love working with others to not only come up with innovative ideas but to execute them in the most effective way possible. To you, marketing is not just about selling but building compelling campaigns that tell stories and resonate with target audiences. And in that case, writing strong press releases is a skill you are always honing. You see analytics reports as an opportunity to fine-tune how your team works and help spot ways to better achieve goals.
4. Journalist Jedi
aka Staff Writer
You love having your finger on the pulse and being the first to know. Writing is where you find your flow, and maintaining an entertaining yet clear and informative writing voice is something you actively think about. You crave the chase for a good story. For you, researching, investigating, informing or sparking a dialogue can be a thrill. Or, maybe you thrive on the opportunity to respond, comment and share opinions. Either way, you always want to keep the meaningful conversation going.
