Can you communicate daily campaign updates to clients and to management? Are you meticulously organized? Do you listen to others carefully? Would you never leave the house without your smartwatch, smartphone, tablet or at least a pen and paper to take notes and
track everything? If so, I bet nothing gets by you.
