This assignment was for me to search for companies who were looking to fill jobs that involved technology. I used the website indeed.com and searched for jobs within the marketing realm that required some use of technology and software. I had to find jobs that I could actually see myself taking on in the future, whether it be straight out of college or 5-10 years down the road. The jobs that I found ranged from managing social media aspects of one company, to being a senior product marketing specialist in another. The five jobs that I chose though all required the use of some form of technology whether it was working with social media, using an ERP software system, or using a computer and various computer programs to track product trends, or create search engine optimization.
It is important to learn the technologies within these jobs because they allow for an easier way to reach target markets. Social media is super important these days in staying connected with other people and other organizations or companies. Being knowledgeable in the use of social media will allow for companies to expand to broader markets and reach more people. One of the jobs that I found had required knowledge and use of Search Engine Optimization. This is super important because companies need to be easily searched on the internet, with the growing use of technology, most people find products their interested in on the internet. Another job I found was looking for a media specialist, in which they would create media campaigns and promote their products through media. In this it is important to know technologies within the social media realm, but also in forms such as TV. It would be useful then to know how to use programs such as final cut pro to make TV campaigns.
