orgsync team outing sales celebrationBefore I begin reminiscing about my very humbling first year since graduation, I want to apologize for neglecting my blog. As many of you know, I’m actively blogging on OrgSync’s Blog (as one of my many roles) and haven’t been able to allocate enough time to komailmithani.com. That has now changed. My goal and direction for this blog is to still provide you updates, while also publishing articles on my observations and ideas in marketing, PR, technology, social media and blogging.

Moving forward, a year ago today, I started my journey in the real world. Some of you may recall, I started off in Houston at OmNovia Technologies, but soon realized the company and culture was not meant for me. Then after many discussions with my parents and some close family members, I decided to pack up and leave Houston for Dallas. Dallas is where I discovered OrgSync and it’s where I’m currently growing my young marketing career. To recap, here are the things that transpired over the past year:

  1. Moved a total of three times
  2. Became the chief social media evangelist for OrgSync (controlling the brands presence on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Youtube and other social networks)
  3. Published a total of 17 blog posts on OrgSync’s Blog
  4. Learned that sometimes you just have to move on, even though you feel as if you have failed
  5. Joined the Texas Young Professionals
  6. Published my first article for a major social media blog, Socialfresh.com
  7. Released my first press release and earned media coverage in a major industry publication
  8. Introduced OrgSync’s quarterly newsletter
  9. Developed a trusting relationship with the people I work with because I truly believe in the mission and vision of OrgSync
  10. Took active control of OrgSync’s blog to provide regular content to our buyers
  11. Made accountable to implement and execute all marketing needs and strategies for Career Colleges, a new market segment OrgSync is beginning to enter
  12. Bought a new MacBook Pro
  13. Took part in a major UI release by OrgSync, Community Home
  14. Came to the realization that I’m truly a nerd that enjoys reading marketing, social media, business and technology books
  15. Learned basic HTML
  16. Started understanding Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 and all the magically things that come with it

This year has been a great learning experience for me both professionally and personally. However, I have to take a moment to acknowledge everyone I work so closely with, especially the Marketing and Design team at OrgSync. It’s an absolute honor to work with each and every one of you, and I can’t wait to see what next year has in store for all of us.

I’m looking forward to the many more opportunities and challenges that come my way and can guarantee I’m excited to see what comes next at OrgSync and my professional career. If you’re interested in joining OrgSync and our fast-growing company, I recommend you take a look at the job openings we have. Also, feel free to reach out to me anytime and I’ll be happy to answer any questions.
