Meet Phoebe Svoboda
Social Media Manager
Where are you from and how did you wind up at Blue Magnet Interactive?
A Chicago girl through and through, I’ve lived in the area my whole life. After studying music business management at Columbia College Chicago and two record label internships, I found myself working at longstanding Chicago Blues label, Blind Pig Records. It was there that I truly discovered my love for social! After three years of managing Blind Pig’s social channels and radio connections, I did freelance work for various social clients before landing at Blue Magnet.
What about Blue Magnet/your role at Blue Magnet do you love most?
I love that Blue Magnet feels like a real team! We’re always bouncing ideas off of each other and working creatively to meet the goals of our clients and ourselves. We all support each other - whether it’s in the conference room or on the kickball field.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Chicago?
I love my Chicago White Sox, so I’m at a ball game at The Cell (Guaranteed Rate who?) at least once a month during the baseball season. That, and I’m always visiting the wonderful museums of Chicago.
What's a fun fact about you?
I volunteer at Shedd Aquarium and give behind-the-scenes tours there! The conservation and rescue of endangered species is a cause that’s very near and dear to my heart, so getting to talk about that every other week at the Shedd is something that I consider to be a genuine honor.
