  • Internship During My Studies
  • Passion for Creating Visuals and Stories
  • Fell In Love With My First Advertising Job

Internship During My Studies

I had about 40 hours of internships to complete at my chosen organization. I was studying management so the fields I could handle and the responsibilities varied. As it happened, I was accepted by a company that didn’t have any set program for me, and I could “try out” various tasks from completely different departments.

It turned out that I proved to be a great fit for the marketing team, whose manager invited me to cooperate further, emphasizing how she appreciated my creative and unconventional approach to marketing. So, in my case, it was a very smooth transition, and I am extremely happy that fate desired it that way.

Passion for Creating Visuals and Stories

I was the Creative Director of my college’s student newspaper, and I enjoyed helping to create interesting visuals and stories. My passion for this work led me to pursue advertising after graduation.

I knew that in order to make an impact in the industry; I needed more than just a bachelor’s degree, so I completed a Master’s program in advertising and marketing.

After graduating, I could secure a job at a reputable advertising agency quickly, where I have been able to use my creativity and knowledge in the industry to develop successful campaigns for our clients.

Fell In Love With My First Advertising Job

I always knew that I wanted to work in a creative field, but I wasn’t sure what that would look like. After graduating from college with a degree in marketing, I started working at a small advertising agency. I quickly fell in love with the fast-paced, ever-changing nature of the industry, and the ability to use my creativity to solve complex problems for clients.

I worked my way up from an entry-level position to a senior role, and I have worked on some incredible campaigns that have made a real impact. While advertising can be challenging, ‌it’s also incredibly rewarding to see the results of your hard work and to know that you’re helping to make a real difference for your clients. I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had in this industry and excited to see where my career will take me next.

Caught the American Entrepreneurial Spirit

I advertised almost by accident during my university days back in Munich. I had a job that was completely unrelated to my degree. Some of my responsibilities included SEO work and Google Ads. I discovered I enjoyed the work and was good at it. A few years later, I moved to the US and continued doing similar work.

Then I caught the American entrepreneurial spirit. I founded my first marketing agency and grew the business significantly. What initially accrued a little spending money has become a very fulfilling career.
