Sorry for the long post...
To give a little background:
I did finance (audit) for almost 5 years only to realise that the monotony and the feeling of not creating something but just checking someone else's work was not my thing. This led me to pursue my 'passion' field which was Marketing and so I went and got a Masters in Digital Marketing.
Since then I have worked in a small company with basic digital marketing, in CRM, in Affiliate Marketing and now finally in a Brand Marketing Manager position.
In this current position, I got to create a whole new subsidiary for a law firm from scratch so right from brand identity, website to the current marketing and branding work. I have done this for almost a year now and obviously, things are becoming more routine and processes have been set. And so, my very annoying brain is bored, for two reasons:
- Same work to do (so no growth or learning potential as such anymore)
- Nothing to create per se anymore.
And this led me to find out a term for the kind of person I am: Starter.
I like building things up from scratch but when they get routine and nothing more is left to explore, I get bored and lose my motivation. I like dynamic work environments (preferably project based I would think (but not sure)
The fields I am interested in are Marketing and Branding strategy.
Also, I like working in pressure environments. (Blame the Indian finance culture for it!)
Is there anyone else who has faced this or is in the similar field and maybe could help me figure out what options I could pursue in this field as my next career step?
Thanks for anyone who read this far!
