Full Time
You are always following current trends and best practices in interactive media and marketing, are constantly trying to find ways to implement what you learn, and like being the internal go-to resource on these topics. You thrive on the numbers but have a creative streak as well. Being called a marketing nerd is a well paid compliment. You like photography, and you may have even taught yourself a thing or two about it.

Sound like you? Read on!
