We first came across Tocquigny when were featuring another Austin, TX based company on One Day, One Internship. We thought that Pierpont, a PR firm, had cool internships and a cool office. We were right about the internships, but it turned out that the office in Pierpont’s Flickr stream was actually Tocquigny’s (here are more pictures of their office). An ultra cool office is enough to get us excited, but we’re also impressed to see that Tocquigny was named the #2 Interactive Agency by BtoB Magazine. If you’re looking to break into advertising, interactive agencies are a good way to go. New media is becoming more and more dominant as old media dies a slow, painful death. We’re not saying that the traditional ad agencies are going anywhere, but new college grads have a much better chance of landing a job and building the foundation for a successful career by becoming familiar with the interactive side of advertising.
Apparently Tocquigny has figured out that their name is hard to spell, but they still don’t have a pronunciation guide. They’re big on measurement and analytics, so maybe their decision to add a misspelling guide was based on all of the search engine traffic that they got for different spelling variations of their name. Mispronunciation isn’t quite as easy to measure.
Tocquigny considers themselves experts in Research and Business Insights, Strategic Planning, Business Consulting, Customer Experience, Branding, Lead Generation, Media and Search Marketing, Creative Ideation, Digital Marketing, and Reporting and Analytics. If you’re interested in any of these fields, you might want to keep an eye on Tocquigny’s current job openings page. Right now they have two jobs that can be considered entry level. One is as a Search Engine Marketing (SEO / SEM) Associate and the other is as an Interactive Developer. You can apply for a job by sending a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with the job you are applying for in the subject line. They also seem to be open to hearing from people who aren’t applying for a specific position, so don’t be shy in sending them a note even if you don’t know anything about SEO or web development.
Tocquigny’s website does a great job of selling themselves as a fun place to work, so check it out. There’s even mention of occasional office ping pong games and free breakfast tacos on Fridays in one of their job descriptions. They’re located in Austin, TX (and they love it, here’s why they love Austin). If you’re not enticed to apply for a job with them, you can at least sign up to get a free marketing best practices poster from them.
