Maria Mikulina

Social media specialist, content producer, strategic mindMoscow, Russia
About me
I am a strategic content creator and a social media manager, with a BA degree in publishing. Here are my answers to TOP 4 interview questions: 1. What are your skills? Generating ideas and structuring them into storylines. Managing brand's social media:
 developing strategies and content plans, organizing team workflow, leading communication with clients, creating content, working with social media tools, admin control, analyzing statistics. Editing: photo, audio and video formats, texts, analyzing design usability. Comfortable working in Photoshop. Basic InDesign and Premier Pro knowledge. Making detail-oriented observations:
 color combinations, film continuity mistakes, Photoshop errors, typos, pattern disturbances, etc. Visualizing systems (mind mapping) and ideas (mood boards, sketching). Fluent in Russian and English languages. 2. What is your ideal workplace? I would like to work with people and businesses that: — conduct neuromarketing research and monitor information in the (social) media; — aim to reverse man-made environmental damages: loss in biodiversity, water and air pollution, deforestation, fracking, industrial waste, etc; — rehabilitate socially excluded groups of people and aim to raise baseline standards of living. 3. How do you see yourself in 5 years? I imagine that my current daily practices would add up to proficiency in: — French (becoming fluent) — Chess (earning a class C rating) — Psychology (learning the basics so I can further specialize in neuromarketing and human attention span studies) 4. What are your preferred work conditions? — Working remotely Experience shows that I am most productive and creative when I choose where and when I work. For this reason, I’m not interested in an office 9-to-5 position (unless it can be flexible). — Clear KPI I want to see results of my efforts and be confident that my time won't be wasted on unnecessary tasks.
