An Interview with Mr. Shivam Sharma, Social media marketer at Fables and DSIM’s Ex-trainee
In an interactive session with Mr. Shivam, he shared his training experiences @ DSIM and knowledge that he has learnt over his training session and some interesting tit bits about his career.
Q1. Hi Shivam, firstly heartiest congratulations for getting your first job with Fables. Going further, we would be happy to know about your qualification and what all projects are you handling at Fables?
Ans. Thanks a lot! I had done software engineering prior to doing digital marketing. I recently got an internship in a brand designing firm called Fables, in Gurgaon. I would be responsible for their social media marketing.
Q3. Shivam, why did you choose digital marketing as the line of career, even after having an engineering degree?
Ans. Pragmatically speaking, I.T. industry is in a bit of a squeeze right now, so there isn’t much work, especially for fresher like me. Hence, I chose the field of digital marketing. Its fresh, its new and its somewhat on the same lines of what I had studied in my software engineering course. So, it wasn’t that much of a change either. Plus, I really wanted to work in an environment which reflects my creativity, and digital marketing is all about that.
Q5. Shivam, how did you get this job and what remuneration have been you offered?
Ans. After completing the course, I enrolled myself in DSIM’s placement cell, and started receiving weekly emails about various job vacancies. I went into one of the interviews that were being held and landed the aforementioned internship. I am getting decent package here.
Q7. Did you find that DSIM’s training program helped you to mark your entry there?
Ans. It did help of course. DSIM’s training program helps me get acquainted to a field which is still somewhat alien in India.
Q9. So, How was your overall training experience @DSIM?
Ans. The best part about my training was the study material given and of course the trainers. The trainers are not conventional teachers; they have worked in the same field in which one would start their careers after doing a course from DSIM, which makes them exactly what a student needs to get an edge over others.The study material is great; I still try to go over things from there whenever I get the chance.
Q11. Well! It was simply great talking to you however before we end the conversation, what would be your message to young fellows expecting to begin their career in digital marketing?
Ans. It’s never too late to start, keep believing in yourself and keep working hard. Good things will come your way.
It was really great talking to you Shivam, we wish you luck for your future and much obliged to you for giving the valuable time.
Mr. Shivam completed his Digital marketing training from Delhi School of Internet Marketing in May 2016.
