Having freelanced as a writer, professionally served as a Search Engine Optimizer and lately pursuing Master's in Marketing helped me to connect the dots. Effective communication is a valuable skill, that translates in to visual elements and smart usability decisions. I was firmly convinced, while some may consider it becoming a jack of all, I was on a unique path to be able to understand the bigger picture to better commuunicate with the team and take charge of creating great products.
In an Endeavour
What was once a hobby, now is an integral part of my skills. Back in 2009, I did a 3-years IT course as a hobby. There was this desire to understand more of how things work, to be able to freelance in creative field.
Having a natural zeal towards communication made me love marketing. From understanding the concept of a brand key to creating a complete brand profile; had quite a number of achievements in marketing. I always remained fascinated by IT though. It was when I realized, my keen interest lies in IT while taking advantage of a creative thought process to be able to prove as a valuable asset to company.
