An Interview with Mr. Shitiz Singh, Account manager in IDEACTS and DSIM’s Ex-Trainee
Q1.Hi Shitiz! We have heard you recently switched your job. Currently you are working as an account manager with IDEACTS. So tell us something about your new job profile.
Ans. Well, my job domain has always been Advertisement sales throughout my career; I work in the same function over here. Wherein I need to make tie ups with various brands/corporates & bring their advertisements on our platform thereby contributing to the revenue source of my company. My current organization is an internet media company.
Q3. Wow! It’s a good package. So why don’t you tell us something about your journey to this job as in what all challenges did you face up till now in your career.
Ans. Right from the start of my career I have been in the sales function & that too in advertisements. So I started out my career with Radio background & then moved to digital. So every day is a challenge in its own given manner in every job. I have seen my ups & down as well. But considering that digital industry is growing at a much higher rate than any other medium so I have my obvious choice made and also lucky enough to got this opportunity.
Q5. Can you please help us with review of DSIM.Did this training help you? If yes how?
Ans. Yes to a great extent. I cannot completely attribute this training towards grabbing my current designation, but in a way it did. Digital marketing knowledge is the right spice that your career needs to taste good. As on date, a digital marketing qualification is a wonderful patch to fix your career.
Q7. Well! It was simply great talking to you Shitiz however before we end the conversation if you could advise something to the young job seekers to learn something from your experience?
Ans. See guys! If you are looking to upgrade your career or settle your career then digital marketing is a nice field. It is an upcoming industry and there are lots of opportunities available especially at the entry level. This is all I want to say. Besides, go ahead identify your area of interest and upgrade your skills in that area. A simple MBA or a graduation is not going to help you settle your career.
