HELPFUL TIP:

How your character makes a living is an important decision. After all, there’s probably a good reason why they chose this career. Think about how they pull on certain talents and skills, have positive or negative traits, and adhere to a specific work ethic to excel. Sometimes characters choose an occupation because of how they were raised, something they experienced, or even an emotional wound, so consider how all of these things will show readers who they are deep down, and why they do what they do.
OVERVIEW:
Nearly every industry, from filmmaking to nutrition to education, employs social media managers. These people are responsible for creating and maintaining the company or industry's online presence while appealing to customers and promoting the establishment's brand. Duties might include running a blog, responding to emails, monitoring and updating a website, and managing social media platforms.

People in this field can work at the office or from home. If they freelance, they may juggle several clients or work on a part-time basis.

NECESSARY TRAINING:
While some professional companies are looking for social media managers with four-year degrees in a field like journalism or marketing, this isn't always the case. Many times, applicants can prove their competency and skillset to potential employers via their own social media accounts, so those will need to be nurtured and well-maintained. Starting out as a freelancer to gain experience and learn necessary skills is also common. Both avenues give social media managers the opportunity to learn the various platforms inside and out so they can use them to interact with customers and promote the company's brand.
