I’m looking for an entry-level position in Sales or Account Management roles in Digital Media. I’m a recent graduate of Northwestern University looking to dive into the world of Digital Media. For the past few months in New York I’ve been meeting with people all over the industry and taking every opportunity to make connections and learn more about the growing sector of online advertising. I’m an extremely competitive, dedicated worker that consistently rises to the top. I recently relocated to New York from Chicago, where I worked as a Data Manager for Winsby Inc, a marketing and digital advertising firm. I developed highly advanced data analysis skills to effectively optimize clients’ digital marketing campaigns. My biggest achievement was creating, at the request of the VP, a unique system that combined several different proprietary systems into one framework that calculates client ROI in real time. I also worked part-time during college for Winsby as a Sales Representative calling potential clients, generating leads, and conducting market research.

1) What was your journey to becoming COO of Mashable?
Initially, I was working in Real Estate and ironically focused on community building. For fun, I began blogging and sending interesting and funny emails to my friends, realizing that I enjoyed the technology and community building aspect of my job best. In 1997, I built a site to increase my search rank on Google, focusing on leveraging my community of friends. In 2007, I began blogging again with community based columns. and this is what I presented to Pete [Cashmore founder and CEO of Mashable]. I knew Mashable and its existing community read more of my style, with news around startups, and social networking.
2) Is there a formula for Startups?
It comes down to blogging 101. Make sure you are writing and providing good content that is positioned well, and is relevant to your community. Be sure to include community building opportunities through easy share functionality.

Whether you’re a journalist, a rocket scientist, a ballet dancer or even a doctor, writing a blog can be an important tool to your everyday success. There are many different types of blogs out there, which is why there is something for everyone. Whether you choose to blog about your everyday adventures, your “likes and dislikes,” best travel spots, best restaurants, or even for the business you currently are employed at, blogging is a good way to put your thoughts down and share what you know with others.
For me, blogging for SDZR has shed light on many different social media sitess, job related sites, and other useful sites that shared blogs I never would have seen or heard about otherwise. They have shared many insightful tips and tools on how to be successful in everyday tasks, that of which I have since become more aware of after writing reviews of the ones I have valued. Even simply subscribing to an online newsletter such as SDZR or another
