Entry-Level jobs are designed for graduated individuals or those who are seeking a new career direction. Learning the ins and outs of business and gaining valuable experience is what the jobs offered entail. Entry-level marketing jobs play a key role in setting up career dreams and goals in motion. Many team members here at Amp Exposure started fresh out of college and dove right into their entry-level roles and are now flourishing in management positions. Our Director of Operation, Greyson has a few tips on thriving in an entry-level role:
Never stop learning
“The first thing someone needs to do in an entry-level job is see the value in learning new skills,” our Director explains. “One strategy that helps our Amp Exposure team members is keeping a constantly making notes of the skills you learn in training. If you keep bullet points of what you’re learning each week, you’ll have a good sense of how much progress you’re making in your new job. The confidence that emerges in the process is invaluable. If you’re patient with your growth but determined with your effort, you’ll have a stronger skill set in no time.”
Invest in your professional network
It’s also important to remember that everyone you meet is a networking opportunity when you’re just starting out in your career. “You never know who is well connected or where someone might end up in the future,” Greyson added. “Put your best foot forward when you’re in an entry-level role so you can build up the most helpful network possible. The connections you make in the early part of your career can help you reach your long-term aspirations.”
Have a Strong Work Ethic
When it comes to your work ethic in an entry-level job you must have a strong work ethic and never back down from a task. “I believe you can’t learn if you aren’t being challenged, so I would suggest to always be on the lookout for new and challenging tasks,” Greyson stated. Goal setting is also important to success in entry-level careers. “If you see a management position you dream of, then be sure to make note of the experience that is needed to get to that position.” With that being said be patient with your growth, if you have an intense work ethic you will grow exponentially in your career.
