(Who is Dana? Dana – Media Planner and Buyer with 4 years experience seeking Marketing PR Specialist role)
Terry: Dana, why don’t you tell me about yourself?
Dana: Sure. I am about four years into my work career. I started out in an insurance company in XXX, as an intern and quickly moved up there. I took a Marketing Assistant position as a full-time opportunity and then was promoted to a bigger role. I was in the Marketing team there, so it was Public Relations Account Executive and Media Planner/Buyer role.
The Media Planner/Buyer portion of the role was actually a position that was created for me after the employer had seen my strengths and what I had been working on. It was a great opportunity, a wonderful company to work for. It was a growing company, so I had a chance to work on a lot of different types of marketing projects, including public relation strategy.
I handled all of the media planning and buying and worked very closely with the marketing management and executive level, executive team there.
I made the decision to move to XXX at the end of XXX. I spent almost two years there and wanted to explore career opportunities in XXX and the time was right, so I made that move and joined a media agency. It was a smaller independent media agency and spent about a year and seven months there doing media planning and buying and that brings me to where I am right now.
