These days the entry level job search is a lot like a sweepstakes. You send out hundreds of applications (entries), and assume that you’ll never get a response either way. Still, you hold out hope that you’ll win an all expenses paid trip to… a job interview. It’s not a reassuring feeling, which is why you should change your approach (that’s what we teach you here and especially in our course, Found Your Career). Just like there’s a group of people who have figured out the tricks to winning sweepstakes, there’s also a group of people who have figured out the tricks to landing jobs. Today, I’m hoping that you’ll figure out both by pursuing a job with Don Jagoda Associates. They are a Melville, NY based marketing-services agency that specializes in areas that include: Promotion Development; Sweepstakes, Contests & Games; Online Services; Incentive & Loyalty Programs; Creative & Production; Fulfillment; Travel Services; Refunds & Rebates; Premiums; Tie-Ins & Strategic Alliances; Event Promotions; and Hispanic Promotions.
Now, you may be concerned that the world of sweepstakes, contests, games, refunds, rebates, and all other kind of promotions can get a little sleazy, and you’re probably right; however, Don Jagoda Associates has a fantastic reputation—just ask those people who are sweepstakes afficionados. Don Jagoda Associates is an industry leader, and even though their website isn’t much to look at, it has a ton of information on everything that they do. This includes case studies on projects that they’ve done in Interactive, Integrated, Offline, and Event Promotions. If you look at the case studies, you’ll notice that Don Jagoda Associates works with a ton of major brands. Once you get a feel for all of the cool things that DJA does, you should probably check out their Jobs page. They have locations both in Melville, NY and Los Angeles, CA, and right now they’re looking for an Assistant Account Executive (they don’t say at which location). You can apply by sending a cover letter and résumé to email@example.com.
