As a marketing assistant, Priscilla calls on her strengths every day
As a marketing assistant at a dermo-cosmetic brand, I'm in charge of operational marketing tasks. The French headquarters of our brand provides the Belgian department with marketing material, and I am responsible to distribute marketing items to Belgian pharmacies. Specifically, I translate the texts for our marketing products, such as display cases at pharmacies, and further engage with our representatives and customers. Besides that, I'm also responsible for social media and organising events. This way, I regularly connect with people outside the agency, such as influencers who help put our brand on the map. Finally, the fact that I have ultimate responsibility for all the marketing materials distributed through our department makes the job extra challenging.
My duties roughly consist of eighty percent communication and twenty percent creative work. That ratio fits well with my interests and my skills and competencies.
My skills as a marketing assistant
My duties roughly consist of eighty percent communication and twenty percent creative work. That ratio fits well with my interests and my skills and competencies. I especially like the contact with people. My knowledge of Excel, knowledge of social media and, above all, my language skills are also essential. A nice bonus is that I regularly get to work on my own with my camera. The more often I work creatively, the more my creativity is developed. It's like a muscle you can train.
Working within marketing
I took graduate studies in marketing in preparation for my career, but I feel that I learn the most in the field itself. Marketing is a broad field, where your responsibilities can be very diverse and where you can discover which aspects of the job suit you most as you go along. I learn more every day and in a company that's in full bloom, I get the opportunity to grow more and more. My pay package also grows steadily with my experience and responsibilities. Of course, that's nice bonus.
