“I aced my next interview and secured the job, against 450 other applicants!
After struggling to find a job during COVID lockdowns, Elif gave me very useful advice to really stand out from a digital marketing manager’s perspective.”
After getting past the challenging process of sending applications, here’s how they prepared for the job interview and nailed it!
“I signed up for your newsletter because I find your content very helpful in starting my digital marketing career path! I discovered you on YouTube because I was looking for digital marketing content and helpful tips because I was preparing for an interview for a digital marketing position. All your interview preparation videos really helped me gain confidence to ace the interview and I am so happy because after a week, I got an email that I got the part and will start next week! And now, I am binge-watching your social media audit, content strategy videos, etc to be prepared on my first day!”
“Elif, thank you. I was able to get the internship, now to start strategizing. Also, watched your YouTube video on Arcadium and managed to get an awesome apprenticeship with an experienced digital marketer. You are such a great big help.”
“Hello Elif, I just want to say thank you, I watched your videos before my digital marketing specialist job interviews. I prepared for my interviews with your amazing advice and your videos give me courage for the interview. And, I got the job finally. Thank you! All my best wish with you.”
“Hi Elif, I just wanted to thank you for providing us with such practical knowledge on marketing. I am aspiring marketer (looking for a job) and your YT channel helped me a lot during preparation for my interview and made me think what some crucial steps may be in regards to my career.”
“I spent the first day of Fall starting my first ever marketing job for my dream company after moving abroad solo for the opportunity! 100% thanks to you and all of your tips and guidance on YouTube! Sending you a massive thank you Elif!
“I had an interest in marketing but being such a general field I wasn’t sure where I had to go. I needed some guidance and help. I had many questions and Elif was extremely helpful in making things more clear. She helped me transition my career in a year from working as an IT technician at an accounting company to a copywriter in advertising. Would absolutely recommend her help if you need to change your career or some tips on getting a job in the industry.”

This is not only a great explanation of how to conduct a content audit, but a great example of how to leverage them for your career growth. Thank you!!”

Your video honestly encouraged and relaxed me so much overall! I wrote multiple notes down watching this so I can improve on areas I’m not confident in and things to work on! I just want to say you’re amazing and keep up the amazing content!! Subscribed and definitely come back to watch more videos.”
“Hi Elif! Thank you for creating this video. I came across your channel because I want to go back to school for Management and Marketing. I’m making a career change and this will be a fresh start. Do you have any suggestions on how I can market myself to a postgrad program when I have a little to no experience in Marketing. I’m eager to learn and I know I can. Any advice would be great. Thanks! Keep up with the videos, they’re helpful.”

“As I’m currently looking to move abroad and work in the UK, I contacted Elif so that we could strengthen my resume and my competitiveness for the UK market. She went beyond the extra mile during our session. Not only did she take the time to go over with me all the improvements for my CV and cover letter, but she also helped me find different strategies for me to be successful in my future career. From networking strategies to certifications, I found more answers than I expected! There was not a shred of general advice. Elif does her research and collaborates with you based on your specific needs, skills, and experience. Thanks, Elif!”
And some general ones because I can't get enough of them 🙂 There are hundreds more comments like these.

“I am really thankful with all your content! I have been watching all your videos for like 2 months and I have learned a lot.”
“I really appreciate your effort in order to share your knowledge so much. But I appreciate your kindness with your kids the most. You don’t lose your temper yelling at them to sit down quietly or to go away from the camera or location where you are filming, instead of that, you smile and listen to what they are saying without losiong your focus. This is magnificent. I can feel how honest you are as you just open the camera and talk, letting everything go naturally. Thank you for being a good marketer and a good mom.”
“Thank you for making this video Elif! As always, your content is top notch and full of extremely helpful takeaways. Like yourself, I’ve always considered video for myself/ clients but never committed to a full video strategy (thinking it will take too many resources). Excellent to hear your experience and new perspective on what to expect.”
“Elif! This is such a great video! We just found your channel and love it already. You have a new sub! We love how real you are and how down to earth with your content and we love to see others in the industry using their platforms to share knowledge to build others. Keep up the great work. We are a digital marketing agency out of Corbin, Kentucky. We post a weekly vlog every Friday. We hope you’re doing well and staying safe! We can’t wait to see more videos from you!”
