Applying for a new job isn’t too different than today’s world of online dating. You do a little research to see if you like them and then once you hit submit, you wait anxiously to see if they like you back.
When you receive that email or phone call that they’d like to interview you, the nerves really start to set in. You change your outfit no less than five times and realize that you’re more nervous than any other first “date” you’ve ever been on.
Navigating the world of digital marketing and finding the right career path is not always an easy task. There are many bright and talented marketers out there, and a seemingly endless list of agencies that at least claim to have digital marketing expertise. And weeding your way through the duds to find those that will truly create a great experience, and a lasting connection takes work.
Below are a few short stories of four TopRank Marketing employees (including myself) that swiped right on our agency and haven’t looked back since.
What Do You Continue to Choose TopRank Marketing?
Title: Vice President I actually get this question a lot when I’m interviewing candidates for TopRank Marketing. The answer has evolved over the years to be honest, but let’s go way back.
My first goal – when interviewing at various agencies around the Twin Cities – was to put my degree to work.
My second goal – I didn’t want to be bored. I remember telling Susan Misukanis (President of TopRank Marketing) in my interview that while I’m a fiercely loyal person, if I find myself looking at the clock during the day, longing for the day to be over, I’ll know this job isn’t for me. I had worked more than one job at a time for most of my years in college, so I knew all about having a job that was nothing more than a paycheck… and slowly watching the second hand slow tick down to punch out time.
It’s been 10+ years. I’ve not once looked at that clock and longed for quitting time. I love my job. I love the challenge. I love our clients. I love our team.
