Digital Media Specialist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Digital Media Specialist?

Digital Media Specialist in beekman:
"Working in the Event Rental Industry."
Pros: I get to use my creativity and skills to create advertisements, social media posts, and product images for a rental company.
Cons: It is unclear how much work is expected of me day to day and week to week.

Digital Media Specialist in Harlingen:
"Right Job, Wrong Industry."
Pros: Working with code to produce websites and other small web applications. This has allowed me to progress far in becoming a web developer.
Cons: The type of business that I work for. I personally don't know much about accounting, let alone explaining anything about the work that my coworkers do. If I have to be the receptionist, I would have to know a substantial amount of terminology and how things work in this type of business to engage with customers. Being that I'm a web developer, I don't wish to find myself in a situation in which I have to deal with the customer, given that I don't know about their tax situations, but yet somehow I still find myself having to deal with that. Yes I was receptionist for 6 months before being promoted but now that I have my separate work to deal with, I don't wish to deal with anything accounting related or for the customer, unless there's an emergency.

Digital Media Specialist in Fort Worth:
Pros: I get to work in a vast variety of tasks and projects. I'm learning new software and new marketing concepts. That I do love.

Digital Media Specialist in Washington:
"Creativity and passion with a high stress level."
Pros: I love that I get to do something creative, every single day, and fight for what's right.
Cons: Digital media is a constant animal that has to be fed - can be extremely stressful many weeks. Very few people understand how long it takes or what your workload is really like. Many think that you don't deserve to make a higher salary for your skill set.

Digital Media Specialist in Birmingham:
"Interesting work... Sometimes."
Pros: The problem solving that I have to do can be very interesting. Also, the theory behind what will make people interested in ads enough to click on them can be very intriguing.
Cons: There can be a fair amount of boring down time.

Digital Media Specialist in Knoxville:
Pros: It is nice to have a steady income. The people I work with are very nice but I am still very young in comparison. My job can be fun and exciting when I am on certain projects, other times I am twiddling my thumbs asking for extra work.
