I will be a part of the lululemon social media team.
By: April , 2011
Why is this my goal?
I want to work for lululemon because I am passionate about “creating components for people to live a longer, healthier, more fun life.” (lululemon’s mission) I have learned how to set personal health and fitness goals over the past few years and because of the support and education I received from the people around me – I’ve achieved them!
Once I set one goal, I achieved it and found myself setting a new one! Before I knew it the process of setting and achieving goals became so integrated into my life I do it on a daily basis without thinking twice about it. I never dreamed I would be able to run a 10k, but I have and now I’m aiming for a half marathon! The thought of practicing yoga and realizing all its benefits never even crossed my mind as an option – but now I LOVE it!
I have to admit that lululemon’s manifesto has inspired me to be the best person I can be, for me and no one else. I believe that nourishing the body, mind and soul are vital in order to live a happy, fulfilling and successful life and that you can achieve anything you put your mind to!
How am I so sure? I’ve been living it!
Now, it’s my goal to be a part of a team and movement to create the support to give back this health mentality. Sometimes people just need a little inspiration in order to find the strength within to create that positive change leading them towards a happier more fulfilling life. It’s possible; anything is possible! I want to be a part of creating the ability for change.
How might you ask am I going to achieve this goal? I must work for the best company out there doing exactly what I love to do of course!
Work with lululemon!
As the organized, goal oriented person I am, the process must be clearly thought about and broken down into steps!
Step One: Applying – Check!
After applying for the digital storyteller position with the lululemon Social Media Team, I thought that if this is a goal I want to achieve (and yes it scares and excites me!) I need to make it happen!
Step Two: Using social media to make an impact – Check!
Welcome to my blog! :)
Step Three: Show the social media team what I’m made of! – Check!
This is where you come in! I could sit here and talk about myself until I’m blue in the face (Not good. Breathing deeply is important!). Or I could tweet about how much I love lululemon all day long (A little too much don’t you think?)!
I could get the people who know me personally to be a testament that I do indeed embody the lululemon mission and live the elements of its manifesto without conscious thought!
I’ve submitted the cover letter and resume. I’ve set my 1 year, 3 year and 10 year goals. And I’ve integrated the manifesto into my life. I’m already up on top of social media, know how to follow trends, have a degree in strategic communications and most importantly refuse to work for a company whose mission isn’t closely related to my personal one. I know I can do a great, better than great, job for lululemon – I just need the opportunity to prove I can!
This is where YOU come in! I’ve explained what, why and how I want to work for lululemon and I’ve used my expert social media skills to get you here now I need some feedback!
Your mission is to comment on this blog post telling the lululemon social media team how well I’d fit into their team! Responses can include, but are not limited to giving wonderful examples of how I am:
· A goal setter
· Self-aware, possessing a desire for constant self improvement
· Someone who actively lives and breathes the lululemon culture and lifestyle
· Intrinsically motivated and passionate
· Empathetic and approachable
· Outgoing, energetic, upbeat and FUN
What do you think? Can you help me prove to lululemon I have the ambition, ability and skills to be a part of their exciting social media team?
