Chandra: What path did you take to your current position?
Adam: My current position is associate client manager at Point It, and it is more or less entry level search, due to the fact that most of my experience is on the traditional side of media. I worked for three years at an agency right out of school buying and planning advertising for TV, radio, billboards, newspapers, and magazines. When I moved to Seattle, I took a role on the digital side and put together site direct media plans. I was then recruited for a role in which I focused on outdoor along with digital planning. This lead me to realize how much I needed to learn in the digital arena, especially search. Naturally, this led to my current role at Point it where I have the perfect opportunity to learn and grow.
Chandra: Why did you choose Point It?
Adam: I chose to come work for Point It when I realized that the company’s values aligned with mine. I was looking for a place that had fulfilling work, supportive managers, and team-oriented co-workers, all of which I identified at Point It through the interview process. The waterfront view didn’t hurt Point It’s chances at all, though.
Chandra: What are you most excited about in your new role?
Adam: I am most excited to learn and work with a team of really experienced co-workers. The amount of knowledge that I am surrounded with each day is incredible, which motivates and inspires me to take things to the next level. I am also excited to work with the, frankly, hi-profile clients that Point It works with. Being able to work with such sophisticated clients definitely helps lead to highly sophisticated and fun campaigns.
Chandra: If someone wanted to follow in your footsteps, what piece of advice would you offer them?
Adam: I would offer someone who was following in my footsteps one major pieces of advice. Networking and not burning bridges is key. Every industry is a small world, and finding jobs in today’s society, it is much quicker through networking. Trying to apply to jobs by digitally sending in resumes takes much longer and is far less effective than going through people you know and their networks. You never know when you will need to look for a new opportunity, and having a network to fall back upon is key.
