  • How long have you been working for the company and how did everything start?

I have been working for the company for seven months now. Prior to my job application, I had read a lot of positive reviews about the company. So, when Nikolai Kalenski invited me for an interview, I jumped on this opportunity right away. When I got the job offer several days later, I didn’t even think twice. Now I’m really thankful that Niki Kalenski appreciated my potential and put his trust in me. 🙂 

  • What are the biggest challenges in what you do?

The biggest challenge is to keep up with the daily changes in social networks.

  • What are the most fundamental skills you should have for your current position?

Creativity, logic, research skills ?

  • As a SMO specialist, tell us what it is like to be one.

This is a job that gives you everything. But it could be quite challenging at times because the social media landscape changes really fast. So, SMO specialists should act quickly and accordingly in order to achieve the best results.
