Robertson Coaching International
At Robertson Coaching International, also known as the Don't Settle Group, Calvin's primary responsibility was developing content in the form of videos and digital art to increase the brand's reputability while delivering value to its members. This included capturing footage both locally and abroad, organizing footage and resources into a media library, and editing the videos into their own unique stories or messages. Calvin was also responsible for designing all digital media, ranging from event flyers to web images to presentation slides used for speaking engagements. He also played a key role in audience growth for the firm's social media platforms, helping the firm's Facebook page reach 10k followers and nearly doubling its original following of 2k followers on Instagram in less than 4 months.
While, to present, Calvin serves as an on-call media consultant for RE/MAX Omega, he was hired for his specialty in Data Analytics and Report Configuration. In 2014, Calvin was tasked with accounting duties, as well as creating reports to better understand the firm's finances to reduce costs. He not only reconciled and corrected data entry errors across all of the firm's accounting platforms, but also developed a streamlined system for accounting and reporting for future employees to utilize. His analysis and reporting system enabled the firm to cut various costs and identify high-performing individuals to reward them. Currently, he advises the firm in their marketing and social media strategy to capitalize on their existing resources to generate high quality leads.
University of California, Irvine (Mesa Court)
As a freshman at UC Irvine, Calvin coordinated a collaborative fundraising effort for Japan in response to the earthquake and tsunami of 2011. He was able to unite over 100 freshman volunteers, several student organizations, and even university staff & administration to raise over $2,000 through a bake sale and benefit concert. This and his other involvements led to his hire at Mesa Court, one of the freshman housing communities at UC Irvine. During his time as a Community Programmer and member of the Residential Education Board, Calvin coordinated numerous events with his team to engage freshmen in educational and recreational events. Together, he and his team assisted many freshmen in integrating and adapting to college life. Responsibilities of those roles included event coordinating, marketing, delegating, budgeting, team management, conflict management, and developing project proposals.
