Assignment
#4
 


I
pitched
and
bid
to
a
company
who
was
looking
for
a
“Social
Media
Writer”.


The
job
was
for
ImIn.com,
and
there
were
many
specifics
on
the
job
description.
 There
was
an
entire
word
document
of
the
duties
that
would
be
required
for
the
job.
 For
instance,
they
want
the
employee
to
use
Twitter,
Facebook,
and
Bitly
for
the
 social
media
sites
to
promote
on.
Furthermore,
the
status
updates
would
consist
of
 promoting
coupons,
deals,
promotion
of
the
website,
promotion
through
holidays,
 relate
popular
movies,
foods,
etc.
Furthermore,
the
requirement
is
50
posts
on
 facebook
a
week
and
500
posts
on
Twitter
a
week.
To
be
honest,
I
found
the
amount
 of
posts
per
week
to
be
rather
high,
but
if
it
is
the
company’s
main
source
of
 advertising
I
suppose
it
makes
some
sense.
However,
the
only
caution
I
would
 advise
is
that
that
amount
of
posts
and
updates
a
week
could
annoy
followers
and
 fans.

 


I
found
this
experience
to
be
more
interesting
than
the
other
ones
mainly


because
the
job
description
was
so
detailed
that
it
provided
a
very
good
idea
of
what
 is
expected
for
the
job.
Furthermore,
it
gave
me
a
good
idea
of
how
much
work
 would
be
required
for
the
week
and,
therefore,
how
many
hours
I
would
need
to
 work
and
what
to
charge
the
client.
I
also
found
this
experience
more
interesting
 because
the
job
description
was
social
media
which
is
the
area
I
feel
most
qualified
 and
experienced
in,
therefore,
I
felt
more
confident
applying
for
this
job.

 


My
overall
impression
about
the
process
was,
for
one,
that
the
employer
was


very
organized
and
had
a
good
idea
of
what
they
wanted
the
employee
to
 accomplish.
Furthermore,
I
felt
that
I
was
more
qualified
bidding
for
this
job
and



Colette
Campo
 
 was
confident
in
the
amount
to
charge
the
client
since
I
had
a
good
understanding
of
 what
was
expected
from
this
job.
I
learned
that
specifics
in
a
job
makes
a
huge
 difference
in
what
to
expect
and
in
knowing
your
own
capability
and
qualifications
 for
the
job.
