While the US job growth slowed for the second straight month, Adlucent welcomed a record 16 new employees to the team. When you put that into perspective, Adlucent was responsible for .0001% of the job growth for the United States economy which added 115,000 new jobs in April. It may seem like a small number to some, but every percentage point has a significant economic impact.
In the past year, we’ve added 45 Adlucites, growing our team by 247%. When you compare that growth to the Austin economy, which added 19,700 jobs from March 2011 through March 2012, Adlucent was responsible for .002% of the job growth in Central Texas. And we’re not done yet. Adlucent is looking to hire key positions in sales, creative and account services. We’re searching for smart, unique and talented individuals who want to grow their careers and live our philosophy of being Better Every Day.
At Adlucent, we strive to create the best possible work environment for our team, and it shows. In March, Adlucent was named to Advertising Age’s list of Best Places to Work, an award driven by employee feedback.
Sam Porter and Roel Macias update the marquee on the front of our office.
So who are the new hires? Here’s a little insight on three of our newest recruits:
Roel Macias, Art Director
Roel joined the Adlucent team in April after spending several weeks performing contract work for the company. He is responsible for helping build and manage Adlucent’s visual brand. Roel says the best part about his job is the collaborative environment. “I love working with the marketing team. We help each other learn, grow and be more efficient” Roel said.
Kara Kalasky, Cultural Project Manager
After Kara interviewed for a position on our account team, Nick Herman, Chief of Culture at Adlucent, recognized her potential as a project manager and cultural ambassador. Kara now works as the Cultural Project Manager, a role in which she helps prioritize and execute projects to maintain Adlucent’s vibrant culture. She, along with the entire leadership team, works to create a positive environment for Adlucites to expand their careers and feel connected to the business.
Tram-Anh Huynh, Account Specialist
Tram-Anh was one of eleven recent hires to the account and production team, the largest team of recruits ever. Her “class” of paid search experts have been busy absorbing the Adlucent approach to retail SEM. Tram-Anh believes that the company’s personal and professional investment in its employees has been one of the most valuable experiences so far. She also noted success induced by the forward-thinking culture in that “no matter the experience level or functional expertise of an employee, ideas for future growth are met with curiosity and interest.”
