Career Advice for Marketing Graduates: A #CMWorld Twitter Chat with with Taylor Barbieri

Fresh out college, I was invincible. I attended a good liberal arts school. (You may have heard of them; they were the Cinderella of the 2018 Final Four.) I interned in two top-10 television markets. I was engaged. Degree in hand, nothing could drag me down.

Until it did.

College commencements are around the corner. That means new graduates making the transition from student to employee. So, what should we as seasoned marketers tell those fresh out of school?

Career advice can come from anywhere: Family, friends, colleagues, bosses, and the CMWorld community. Ask Taylor Barbieri. As a young professional, she has already made a name for herself as Creative Content Marketer at Podia. Taylor credits her success to hard work and the guidance of others.

Remember that moment when I felt discouraged? I was told a piece of advice that will always stay with me. A coworker pulled me aside and told me to always say “yes.” Say “yes” when asked to take on new responsibilities. Say “yes” to learning a new skill.  Say “yes” to something scary.

I hope you’ll say “yes” to reading the rest of this blog post. In it you will find highlights of our #CMWorld Twitter chat with Taylor. Then let us know in the comments what you would tell new marketing grads.

How can recent grads apply what they’ve learned in school to market their professional development?
