Mike, the firm’s director of operations, explained that their career opportunities would give ambitious students the chance to gain hands-on experience in an empowering, supportive environment. Not only are training participants given the chance to learn from seasoned marketing professionals, they are also going to work on national promotional campaigns for Fortune 500 clients, allowing them to gain invaluable experience they can use to build a career with the company.
Mike commented on the focus on college graduates during their hiring push, “When I graduated I was hungry, optimistic, and believed that I could make any dream a reality.” He went on to explain what happened to him after he entered the business world, “It didn’t take long before I was burned out. College graduates aren’t yet disenchanted like those in corporate America. I wanted to find that opportunity where I can utilize my skills and I knew I was in the wrong place.”
He explained that their senior marketing specialists help these graduates harness their enthusiasm and provide support and encouragement so that they can avoid the standard corporate world and work on a career they love.
Decisive Marketing Solutions Offers College Grads a Fresh Way to Achieve Career Success
Decisive Marketing Solutions provides their entry-level student opportunities in part to provide graduates the chance to get the real-world experience they’re seeking. As Mike explained his experience fresh out of the academic world, “I had an irrational expectation of what I was going to be doing out of college. The reality of the situation is I had to spend 32 months job searching and then I had to give six to 12 months of free work. No one tells you, in order to be the CEO you have to endure this kind of labor and then wait, sometimes years, for that opportunity to advance.”
Mike wants to help other college graduates avoid all of that by offering an alternative that’s not only rewarding, but highly beneficial to a person’s long-term business prospects. “The beautiful thing about our business is that we give people that opportunity to genuinely grow. There are no office politics or biased opinions. We put people’s careers into their own hands. It’s rare that people go out from college and land their dream job; it certainly takes work to get there but we provide coaching and opportunities to do what you want and get that dream job.”
The company believes that a college student from virtually any field, including business, accounting, communications, and more, will benefit from time spent learning the firm’s unique promotional methods. When explaining what type of person they look for when hiring, Mike said, “If you can be easily coached and have a solid work ethic, you will be successful in this business. If you’re educated that’s fantastic; if you’re hungry and you’re willing to work hard, that’s even better.”
Graduates of Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, as well as any other academic institution will be accepted. With graduation right around the corner, the company has accommodated an influx of applications and has prepared new and exciting training techniques to set in place immediately. Applications for summer positions can be submitted through the company’s website.
