I'm looking to transition from social media to a brand strategy role. Are recruiters looking for an explanation and how do I avoid being overlooked?

I try to say something useful, I don't know if you are past forward this or if this will help. Sorry if it won't. Social media strategy is about using channels. Brand strategy is about overthinking, philosophy and semantics. Some of the strategic thinking you use to do as a social media strategist is considered 'media stuff' by brand strategists. Show that you are all about the brand message.

No that was great. I can def frame my experience in story that way using social as a platform. Thank you so much!
