After a long mostly happy stint as a working professional at various organisations I have mustered courage to chart my own destiny.
Before I did here was my SWOT:
Strengths: Good grasp of content, vocally voluble, a relatively thick skin, loved cooking, always ready to experiment, wasn’t shy of making a fool of myself, had good network of contacts and an even better professional support system (I think), reasonably good liking and grasp of social media, took feedback positively
Weakness: Wasn’t good at repetitive work (sucked in fact), not good with dealing/playing office politics, took offense easily (yup contradictory to my earlier assessment), got emotional when not needed, lazy, not good with excel or lousy people and I’m sure there are more but this is what I could come up with
Opportunites: Networking meant I could get into sales and marketing, public relations, content services, corporate communications or any communications-related field, could start a MESS if all else fails
Threats: Laziness may lay all my plans to rest. RIP!!!!
So here I was after the SWOT, and it all became clearer than crystal had to choose a content and communications-related job. This is what I perceive myself to be- a content and communications specialist. The fact that I managed to sustain this blog a whole year, and I have at least a handful of readers bolstered my confidence immensely.
I hope you lovely people keep coming back as I ramble on my journey to discover my true calling.
I have taken on consultancy to help a public relations firm with content and communications. I have also completed a few content projects for social media=face book as of date. Helping out firms with SEO content.
