I won an award

Today my boss was notified that marketing materials I created for my company were chosen for an award. The large organization operating in the United States chose my marketing materials as the best submission of more than 600 entries.

I’m extremely proud.

I am brand new to the industry that I work in presently. I started in May and prior to starting, I’d never had any involvement with anything relating to any company, organization or subject matter surrounding the industry which I presently work. This is a big deal for me. This is also the second award that my work has won in two months.

To me, this is an acknowledgement that marketing is absolutely integral to the way business is done. If you have better marketing, you’re going to have more success with your operations. Heck, if you have better marketing, your company is going to be acknowledged on an international scale when awards are distributed.

While I know that we work as a team and we win as team, we all play different roles within the organization. This win is a direct reflection of the role that I’ve taken on over the past few months and the improvements I have made for their company. I know I said it before but I’m really proud.

Back in the interview process for this job, they asked me ‘Why should we hire you over other qualified candidates?’ The response that I gave them was something along the lines of ‘They may be qualified but they’re not as qualified as I am’ and that they wouldn’t ever regret making a decision to hire me. My boss brought up those comments today when I was informed of the win.

Pretty cool.

    1. Well, I do remember that post. That post was to do with something different. But, I do sense the point you’re trying to get across from this comment. I do feel very good about myself after yesterday, so thank you for the reminder.

      1. Lol! Haha xD. Yes I couldn’t resist the challenge and it was pretty unmistakeable when comparing to your description about it. I was also really surprised that you’d give away so much of your anonymity, in a way. But it’s such a classy way to do it haha. So there’s more scenes? πŸ€” I think I have a load more comments in your spam btw, cos I commented about this last week πŸ˜….

      2. I’m in the classroom scene, in the background of two castle scenes and at the funeral. Sorry. I’m way behind on catching up with comments. I was hoping to get through and caught up this weekend but it’s just not happening. lol

  3. Congratulations – I’m so happy for you!
    I’m interested to see the marketing materials you made. I’m also in marketing, and at the moment I’m stuck in a rut. It would be good to have a dose of inspiration and see what other people do!

    1. Well thank you for the congratulations. My marketing materials aren’t something I will be sharing on this blog, for privacy reasons. Because they were created specifically for my employer, the materials were built around the company name and company details, and thus, I don’t think it’s something for me to share on this blog that I’ve never acknowledged my employer’s name on. If I took mentions of my employer off they’d be blank documents. Hopefully that makes sense. That being said, I love chatting with other people who work in marketing, so if you ever want to talk, feel free to send me an email.
