So I’m a recent graduate with my degree in Marketing, and have experience with market research, design, and social media. I’m currently working part-time for a law firm creating and maintaining their website. My boss thinks he knows everything about marketing and doesn’t believe me when I tell him he’s incorrect or that his ideas could hurt his marketing goals or that he should spend the money to do something beneficial. He also usually doesn’t understand that despite my ability to learn on the job, there are some things you need to hire a specialist for.

Client: So I want you to make an app for the firm.

Me: Ok, what kind of app?

Client: What do you mean?

Me: Well, do you want it to be an extension of your website, or do you actually want it to be functional for your clients.

Client: What do you mean by functional?

Me: You could create a login for each client where they could see the progress of their cases and what they still need to submit to you or the court. You could even have notifications for if they need to attend a hearing or meeting, and have messaging so that it frees up the phones. But, if you want that kind of app, I couldn’t create that.

Client: You couldn’t make that app?

Me: No.

Client: Why not?

Me: Because I have no experience in that.

Client: Why not?

Me: Because that’s not what my degree is in.

Client: Hm…so who would I have to hire?

Me: A computer programmer who can write code and develops apps.

Client: Oh, well that’ll be too much money. You just make the app you can and we’ll deal with the rest later.

Me: lol ok
