Every day for me is different, and it's one of the things I enjoy most about my job. I work as an internal marketing consultant, managing three to four projects at a time across my company's 25+ divisions. Just today I spent my time focused on pricing strategies for commodity cleaning chemicals, a market assessment in the respiratory pharmaceutical industry and web design for a newly launched health care brand. I'm an individual contributor in that I do not have any direct reports, but I manage a cross-functional team for each project I run. Effective management of those teams is critical to my success, and I've found that strong communication and interpersonal skills are some of my best tools. Project management, data analytics and strategic thinking skills are also critical in my day-to-day job.
