I don't know about you, but over the years I've mastered the "windows shuffle" everytime my boss walked past my desk, I'd swap out facebook for a powerpoint proposal, nicolebitchie would be replaced with an old but convincing spreadsheet and my skype call would be abruptly ended. This is definitely not the case at Konnessi, if anything it is expected that I be on facebook, twitter, linkedin mashable, gizmodo and all other relevant social media sites#bigsmile
With that said, I've been working very closely with Amelia. She is the Content Writer and I've been tasked with writing content for the company's blog...errrhhh, blogging for fun is something...but for a company...not sure#smh. Anyway, it turns out I'm not too shabby at it. Herewith a link to one of the articles that I have written: http://www.konnessi.com/blog/traditional-marketing-and-social-media/
Amelia is super awesome, fun and a brilliant writer. She is well read, enjoys travelling and a Harvard graduate; I'm hoping sitting next to her will make me just as smart as she is, if not smarter#lol She has invited me to join her the next time she goes to visit her family in Pittsburgh#YAY!!
|Amelia and I (she wasn't impressed that I looked "African" & she didn't#lol...wanted to rock a "duku" as well...yes,"duku" forget head scarf#lmao. She loves South Africa & speaks a little bit of isiXhosa#lol|
After a month with the SEO Strategists, I will then move on to the Social Media department#WHOOP-WHOOP Proceeding that, I will then be given the opportunity to decide on a department I would like to specialize in until my contract expires next year#WHOOP-WHOOP!!
I am thrilled to be working at Konnessi, I am excited about all the new things I've learnt thus far and all that I will still learn and the experience I will gain. The environment is too awesome and I think I'm going to like it here....a lot#bigsmile
I truly believe that everything that happens, doesn't necessarily happen to us but rather for us. God is continually working for our good and I believe He allows certain events to take place in our lives for our greater good. God is always in control...He allowed everything that happened in NY to happen and had I given up and headed back to SA I wouldn't be experiencing Providence and Konnessi. It says in the word John 15 v 4: "Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me" You see, the enemy isn't a fool, he knows the plans that God has for us and he wants to beat us down and leave us hopeless before we can even make it. I don't think he's concerned about where we are right now but rather where God is planning on taking us. So I've made a decision, everytime I experience some challenges, I will smile and find solace in the fact that God has grand plans for me and the enemy wants to steal my joy before I even experience it and it aint gona happen#bigsmile
Stay blessed xoxo
