Peppercomm is a strategic marketing and communications firm that combines the insight of established experts with the entrepreneurial spirit of an up-and-comer. While very serious about the work we do, we do not take ourselves too seriously.
How to Get Hired
We asked Peppercomm for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We seek entrepreneurially-minded individuals - life-long learners who are intellectually curious, willing to laugh at him or herself, and who always ask "what if?" or "what's next?" We want candidates who will be employees that push the boundaries, yet mitigate risks, for both our clients and the firm. We need problem solvers around challenges with a never-give-up attitude.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Do something different. Use your application as a demonstration of your work - submit a video, a resume that mirrors a BuzzFeed article, design a website showing us how your talents apply to our challenges. Help us visualize you here as an employee. Going the extra mile, knowing who we are, what we are trying to do as an organization and showing how you fit into the mix is an undeniable way to go.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are building out our creative services and digital staff with positions that include developers, search specialists and marketing experts. Additionally, we are adding research analysts to our research & analytics group. In public relations, we continue to see a need for professionals focused on communications for financial services organizations and consumer brands.
