Prepare for the Unpredictable

Social is a multi-disciplinary job. If you want to build an enviable career for yourself in social, you’ve got to become a ‘pro’ at more than just the social aspect of your role. You must become fluent in most (if not all) corners of marketing, advertising, media, and business.

Adrian Parker, Global VP of Marketing for Patrón Tequila, has gone from managing and writing tweets for RadioShack to leading all of the marketing for one of the most well-known luxury spirits brands in the world. He is living proof that you can make social a successful career, you just need to have the passion, drive, and motivation to make it happen.

Patrón Tequila is far from a digital marketing business. However, they understand the crucial role that social plays when it comes to their branding and connecting with their customers online and during times when face-to-face interactions are limited at best.
