¡Hola! My name is Samantha Saenz; last name pronounced /sīnz/, as in dollar signs. It’s how the name Dollar Saenz Media came about. Hopefully, you enjoy the play on words as much as I do.
I have been writing stories, slogans, and poems since I was a child and when my third-grade teacher praised me for a school paper, I knew I wanted to be a writer when I grew up.
I am currently a Contract UX Content Strategist at CVS Health.
My web design and social media skills evolved organically in 2011 when I started my first blog which quickly grew to 3,000+ followers in a few years.
Get to know a little more about me through some popular interview questions:
- Can you tell me a little about yourself?
I am a a UX Content Strategist with 9 years of experience and Shopify partner.
I graduated from Texas State University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, and I currently reside in sunny Miami Beach, Florida!
My favorite food is tacos—just in case you were wondering!
- Why should we hire you?
I wholeheartedly believe great copywriting can help a brand stand out and go places. Words are puzzles, and I have a passion for helping clients solve them by writing compelling, high-converting copy that gets their brands noticed.
- What are your greatest professional strengths?
I am equal parts creative and analyzer. I am concerned with making sure my words sound pretty and convert.
- What do you consider to be your professional weaknesses?
I pick up on a lot of non-verbal communication and depending on the situation it can be a benefit or a detriment.
- What is your greatest professional achievement?
Writing the June Golf Digest Magazine Ad for Golfsmith. Our former Creative Director pushed me to write it and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity. I stretched as a writer and as a creative.
- Tell me about a challenge or conflict you’ve faced at work, and how you dealt with it.
In a previous position, I was waiting on a graphic from our graphic designer until about an hour before it was supposed to go out on a client’s social media channel. I explained the situation to my team including upper management and helped develop new procedures to prevent a similar situation from happening in the future
7. What are you looking for in a new position
I’m looking for a copywriting position where I can help a company tell their story.
8. How would a boss or co-worker describe you?
I’ve had previous co-workers and bosses describe me as a self-starter, a hustler, and a great communicator.
9. What do you like to do outside of work?
I am a water child, so after work you can find me at the beach or juicing fresh concoctions in my kitchen while listening to audible!
10. If you were an animal, which would you be?
I’d be a dolphin so I could live in the ocean!
11. How do you deal with stressful situations?
I make a list of what needs to be done and execute strategically according to what is most pressing. I delegate what I can if possible and make time to go for a bike ride.
12. Do you have any questions for us?
How can I help your brand?
