It’s not you. It’s your cover letter.
Who knew, that such a profound job posting could attract so many potential candidates? We’ve had our hands full these last few weeks, combing through the mounds of cover letters, in search of our future counterparts. The responses we received were unprecedented, and we’ve definitely had our work cut out for us. With a little help from the Advertising and Marketing Gods, we were lucky enough to come across two brave, qualified candidates who accepted the challenge as our new Copywriter and Social Media Strategist.
Hire an English major, they said. It will be fun, they said. Well, it was! We found our very own Jill-of-all writing trades, a human catchphrase wrapped in Banana Republic, and someone willing to make coffee every morning. Nikki Beck joined our team as a Syntax Architect. She’s an experienced writer, with a Bachelor of Arts in English, from the University of South Dakota. She has an eye for quality, a knack for creativity, and is someone who defines our core value of handcrafted, from her composition to her glasses. She’s our very own advertising think-tank, and we’re glad to have her on board.
When she’s not drafting up her newest project, Nikki enjoys visiting the downtown area’s local shops, eateries, and music venues. She also enjoys the outdoors, visiting new places, being a Halloween enthusiast, and long walks around T.J. Maxx.
We’ve also hired a Marketing and Communications prodigy. She’s not just any presentation genius—she’s an experienced and well-rounded graphic designer, publisher, communication specialist, and graduate from University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Oh, and she can do a headstand. We like that, and we liked her so much that we gave her the title Digital Mechanic. Whether she’s managing various media platforms, developing social strategies, or interacting with consumers, her certified skill-set will shine through her personality and work. We are more than ecstatic that she chose to shine with us.
