Sparq Online Marketing Manager graduates with master’s degree from Point Park
Our online marketing manager, Kaitlin Roth, graduated in April with a Master’s in Communication Technology and social media. She will use her newfound education to implement strategic social media plans and immersive online marketing campaigns.
Kait states that: “My career-focused courses explored social media best practices, crisis and strategic communication, analytics, search engine optimization and social media campaigns. Diving into these from a corporate marketing and research focus allowed me to become more creative in the content I produce at Sparq. Now I am able to more effectively consider the target demographics and really leverage my creativity to deliver the best messaging to them.”
