The SMMs I worked with made around $40-45K with that experience (in Texas). Definitely ask for more.


Thank you! Currently super underpaid but didn’t know what was a reasonable ask…

Depends what type of media you have experience with. Is it e-commerce, paid media, TV, radio, streaming and etc. Also what corporations you’ve worked for as well. You can email me your Resume at and I can help you with this question.

TFW the recruiter that ghosted you starts creeping around on your LinkedIn again.

I received what appears to be a random email from an executive recruiter at a firm in NY. She has a client but can not disclose who it is at this time ( ie. Non disclosure agreement ). I sent my resume thinking not much of it. I just received an email saying that my “resume did not parse correctly into the Candidate Management System. In order to move forward, I need your ATS compatible resume ASAP. “
Why does this feel fishy to me? Can someone provide any additional insight
