I have a question regarding work I was recently asked to take on at work. I’ll try to include as many details I feel might help with the answering of my question.
About Me & My Current Day-to-Day at Work:
I’m a newer student working towards a BA in Graphic Design - I’m currently in my third semester
I have working knowledge in Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign, If in a hurry, for quick & easy social media content I do use Spark Post
I work as the Assistant Manager at a locally owned wine & liquor store (small staff, 2-3 solo night shifts a week)
Im enrolled in college, full-time (3 courses, 4 credits each)
While in school I work 30-35 hours at the store
I am horrible at time management but it’s something I’m working on (hence this post )
My New Job Duties (the focus of this question)
Maintain, manage & create all content for our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram), web site & mobile app
Redesign our website & mobile app (like every part of them, they are both terrible in their own right)
Design & create all in-store, off-premise & web promotional materials, advertisements, etc.
I’ll be maintaining all of my current Asst. Mngr. job duties in addition to this new work
I think that about covers everything! Now, for my actual question:
Considering the hours I spend at work, what kind of time block do you guys think I should be setting aside for this new design work??
I’m asking this for two reasons:
- Im not the best time manager (as mentioned before).
- I know my boss & I are not going to agree initially on the amount of time I should be scheduled for each week to work on this new work.
Sorry for the lengthy post, guys! I just wanted to make sure you had all the info you might need! I’m meeting with my boss in a week to discuss how we are going to move forward. Your advice will be greatly appreciated in that meeting.
Thanks in advance!!
