Digital Marketer and Content Creator, The Hairy Travelers

Hello everyone! I’m seeking advice on transitioning into a more stable role in digital marketing and content creation within the travel industry. Could you share your experiences or tips on finding job opportunities, especially with small travel companies?

More Details:

I have a solid background in digital marketing and content creation, most recently working for a hostel and tour company with operations across Israel, Jordan, Egypt, and the Philippines. This role involved managing a wide range of promotional and content creation tasks aimed at boosting online presence and customer engagement.

Previously, I collaborated with tour agencies in Austria, contributing to projects in Austria, Serbia, and Hungary. This volunteer work was intended to enhance my portfolio. Currently, I'm freelancing as a social media content coordinator, digital marketer, and content creator for a musician, aiming to build more diverse experiences.

Despite my efforts in leveraging platforms like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and various job boards, I haven’t had much success in landing a new role. It seems these traditional job-finding platforms aren’t yielding the results I expected.

I’m eager to hear from you—how did you secure your position in this field? Any guidance or leads you could provide would be immensely appreciated as I navigate this challenging job market.

Thank you in advance for your help and insights!

Hi Lindsay, Being visible on Travel Massive is a great start!

Have as many conversations as you can. Connect with people, work your network, attend relevant meet-ups and don't be afraid of asking people for help and ideas. I'd recommend not necessarily waiting for opportunities to be advertised. Proactively write to the companies that interest you. Tenacity and persistence —nothing beats it. Don’t dismiss interim opportunities either. They can be a great way of getting into a business.

Keep going. You'll get there!

I look forward to seeing what other tips the Travel Massive community has to share.

Thank you Mathew! I really appreciate the feed back. I already feel connected to so many new people who are related to my field just by being apart of Travel Massive. I think there are so many websites that help with finding jobs and help connect people but it think it gets a little overwhelming with so many different types of websites to be apart of. Im happy to be apart of such a cool network related to travel. Im here to learn from anybody and whoever can point me in a good direction. I love learning from others.
