Hannah Andrews - SEO Account Director, MediaCom
How the Pandemic has Affected Work for Women
I think the pandemic has been really tough for everyone, I really struggled working from home all of the time as I couldn’t find a balance between work and relaxing. My living room became my office so switching off became a real issue. Alternatively, it showed a lot of employers that people can work from home and produce great work. A lot of the places I’ve worked didn’t entirely trust team members to work from home and would constantly be micromanaging, I think with everyone working from home made some brands trust their teams more. I now work in a hybrid way with 2 days in our office in Manchester and this balance is great.
Career Secrets that Every Woman Should Know!
- Find likeminded women in your industry, whether that’s devs/SEO/PPC or other fields, it’s amazing when you can find other women who share the same highs and lows as you. In my role, my friends don’t work in the same industry, so complaining about a website migration will land on deaf ears.
- YouTube tutorials can teach you anything and everything you could ever want to know about any subject, I use these all the time for problem solving at work and just day to day tasks. I spent such a long time trying to wrap my head around high level excel issues and now I’m (almost) a pro!
