Nebo’s love affair with dogs began a few years ago when we found a pup named Cami. Abandoned by her owner and wandering around a pre-reinvigorated West Midtown, full of desolate, cold, abandoned buildings, she made her way to our parking lot. We fed her, got her shots, and made her part of our family. Now she stands as the sweet, beautiful and fearless first lady of Nebo.
Between all the bites of taquitos and exchanging of business cards, the Global Learning Center at Georgia Tech was buzzing with marketing professionals gleaning new insights at the Atlanta Interactive Marketing Association's (AiMA) Content Matters event Wednesday night. Moderated by Colleen Jones, Principal of Content Science, the event consisted of a panel of interactive specialists from companies both large and small. Each panelist shared how they are making content work for their businesses.
Nebo had the good fortune to meet the folks from Portland, Oregon-based WebVisions at a meetup Monday night. Held at Gordon Biersch, we ran into an eclectic group of Atlanta web designers and representatives from leading agencies, many of whom are volunteering to put together the upcoming WebVisions event coming to Atlanta on November 17-18. Local organizers include Andrew Hinton (Macquarium) and J Cornelius (Atlanta Web Design Group).
Last week, we threw out this question to our networks on LinkedIn and Facebook and received a great variety of responses. Feel free to add to the discussion in the comments below.
Brian Easter, CEO of Nebo Agency, had the opportunity last evening to speak to marketing juniors and seniors at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. He joined a panel of distinguished companies and agencies who talked about their businesses and what they’re looking for in an entry-level employee.
Talking to the students was a blast. Their enthusiasm and talent was on full display. They largely have an understanding of the business world they will soon join. Their questions revealed some myths and misperceptions about what is and isn’t important in finding a job and working for an agency. Some common themes emerged in these discussions that we’d like to share with a wider audience. These tips should be helpful for marketing students thinking ahead to their first job.
