Malika, First of all, welcome back to my channel. Thank you so much Sagar for having me It was great doing part 1 with you. No, thank you so much for your time. I appreciate it so my first question is tell us about yourself. What position are you working? , what kind of organization do you work for? So currently i'm working in a finance industry as a social media manager and communication specialist But i'm taking care of all the external and internal communication and managing their social media channels So when you say social media, what do you mean like social media? It's like having fun on social media. No. I'm so sorry Okay, social media is basically, putting updates on social media channels like facebook, linkedin, instagram Whatever company updates and driving an engagement and followers. So there are so many ways if you look at the company pages, you see they're hiring and what's Internally the things that happening in the company or the initiative and they're doing any kind of fundraising events So yeah so managing their company's social media accounts is actually the work of social media manager and when you said Communication specialist.
What do you mean by so by communication specialists? I mean taking care of the internal external communication Participating in events or organizing and events like fundraising events health and safety meetings So all these kind of things that i'm doing right now So Malika, tell us about different job positions one can expect if they're looking for a job in digital marketing in canada well There are so many positions for example seo specialist, digital marketing coordinato,r digital marketing analyst, social media manager, content writer Ppc. Specialist, google ads manager yeah, so there are like so many positions and how would you differentiate between like an entry level position and High level positions? Entry level positions are basically the coordinator And an analyst kind of position for example digital marketing coordinators, social media coordinator And people who have more experience get a position like social media manager Or a digital marketing manager where they handle multiple accounts or a team of people And what are your responsibilities if you're a digital marketing coordinator and digital marketing manager, like what's the difference? so again The manager comes and like for example a manager position Involves like more of handling the team also handling the client or if you are an account manager of a particular account Depends on like digital marketing account you're handling more Client-side communication on a team side like it's a bridge between the client and the team and talking about the coordinator There is no client interaction.
They just work on a particular project. They don't perform the activities and all And talking about the analyst position. They basically look at the analysis of the traffic coming on the website. What's happening? What kind of demographic and what the strategy they need to make? So Malika now tell us about the average salary one can expect like for example If i'm a beginner, i'm just starting my career in digital marketing How much would I be getting and how does it grow once you move up in the organization? So the basic salary that one can expect is somewhere around 35 to 45 And again, it depends on the certification your experience level your skills and your specialization field the salary structure varies as 35 to 45 45 to 65 65 to 85 and then so on depending Again on company to company and also on your experience And well as you mentioned like 35 to 60 35 to 45, these are all annually, right 35 000. Yes, exactly I'm talking about the package, but if you look at the hourly basis like salary on hourly basis it starts from 15 to 17 15 per hour and one can expect that's the basic Yeah that's the basic if you are trying to do a co-op if you're trying to Means looking for an internship position or if you're just a beginner or looking for a part-time work in digital marketing industry So that's the basic that you can expect the minimum that i'm telling you So malika tell us about what kind of organizations or what kind of industry They actually have a demand for digital marketers.
I would say today each and every industry each and every organization are hiring a digital marketer Because they want to have an inbuilt team who can promote them Well and who can make sure that their channels are updated with the recent activities that happen within the organization Before I used to work for the hospitality industry and they used to get it outsourced the digital marketing activities They use to get it outsourced from media agency Later on, they plan to have an inbuilt team within the organization so that they can promote it well so you would say like Yeah, every kind of industry.
I would say whether it's a retail industry, media finance industry, media entertainment industry or a manufacturing Industry each and every industry today needs a digital marketer within the organization Tell us how did you apply your first job? Like what platform did you use? I applied I got my first job through indeed But I applied on both linkedin and indeed And how much time did it take for you to get a job? Oh, I came on an international student visa and I had prior like three years of experience in india still it took me like three to four months to get a job And yeah It was a struggle, but it's fine because you're leaving your home country and coming into a different country Yes So you can expect a struggle for more than like two to three months in order to enter into the market And you had some experience right? Yeah. I had some experience but not the thing not the canadian experience So do you think that was the reason for you not getting a job? I would not really say that because my first organization the first company when I was hired They took me on the basis of my previous experience So I would not really say that it just depends on your job search the way you're searching your resume building or your cover letter Right, right, right.
And you said you applied both on indeed and linkedin? Yes, what other platforms would you suggest? if someone is looking for a job to be honest, I have always used these two platforms and these two platforms have really worked for me One thing that you can do with your linkedin is make it premium So that you just pay a minimum fees of 35 or 45 dollars I don't know if they have increased but it was something around 35 with taxes And you it makes your account premium and get it highlighted in front of the recruiter Also, you can do the salary range or the person who is posting the job so it becomes easy for you to look at the salary, person looking for the Person actually has posted the job and how many applicants and how many competitors are there with you? Okay, but it was linkedin sorry it was indeed that got you your first job yes exactly it was indeed which got me first job So I have this last question before we wrap up this video it's from one of our viewers one of my subscribers that His wife she's looking for a career switch.
