As a Social Science major you may consider that your career options are limited.
You graduate. You do a Masters degree. Maybe a PhD. Then you go work as a psychologist, therapist, counselor, social worker or educator.
My name is Lauren Serpico and I was also a social science graduate in psychology. I’ve felt the fear of the unknown in my early 20s. After graduation, I was about to do what "psych majors are supposed to do”, and go on to become a psychologist.
Thankfully, I came across a Craigslist ad that brought me back to my unique path. It read: Paid Social Media Strategist internship, and I got the position after talking about Myspace and AIM.
Fast forward a decade and because of that decision, I have built a life I am so proud of, working remotely as a Social Media Strategist.
Now I want to share my secrets, so you can build this life for yourself.

I had the pleasure of working with Lauren remotely for about a year. Lauren helped me navigate the challenging aspects of working from home—namely, setting boundaries between work time and leisure time. I love Lauren’s positivity and enthusiasm for both social media and working remotely! They are contagious! While we worked at the same start-up together, I really appreciated how Lauren was so willing to experiment with trying different techniques on social media, and how she stepped up and came to my aid when I really needed it.
While I only have personal social media, Lauren has helped me be more conscious of how I present myself, as well as reminding me to stay true to myself.
“Shouldn't I have a marketing or relevant degree to get a social media job?”
“No, not necessarily. Social science is as relevant as it gets for social media and marketing. Your background in research, communication, and human behavior is pure gold when it comes to creating a social media strategy."
