About Aneta Pawlik

So here we are. You want to know more about me. * soundtrack intensifies *

Short Bio

This is me! Vienna, March 2020.

I was born and raised in a small village in the south of Poland. In 2009 I moved to the UK to take up BA Advertising and Public Relations course at the University of Northampton. During the second year of my degree, I started doing unpaid internships because I am a millennial. After graduating in 2012, I worked a variety of marketing roles: marketing coordinator in direct selling, marketing assistant for a Europe-wide campaign, event manager, and marketing manager. In 2014 I transferred to Bratislava to work in an events company, which, while fun, was not something I wanted to do long-term. Roughly 9 months later I found myself looking for carton boxes and hauling my belongings across the border to Vienna. It’s been my home since then.

How I Became a Freelancer

In 2016 I was looking for a job in Vienna. Sadly, English-speaking jobs in marketing are few and far between. After being encouraged by a small business owner, who soon became a client, I registered as self-employed in March 2016.

It’s been an interesting ride because I honestly had never thought that I would ever go freelance. I like the safety of an employment contract. However, five years into being a freelancer, I manage to beautifully combine part-time employment and working on cool content marketing projects!

What am I doing right now?

  • I work at Impact Hub Vienna as a Content Marketing and SEO Manager
  • I freelance part-time, but I am selective with whom I work
  • I am taking care of myself. Last year I went through burnout, which taught me a lot.
  • I am continuously learning!
  • I am continuously reading!
