Daione Sanders-Carvertise Director of Sales: Personally, I have found that getting involved, volunteering, networking and putting yourself out there is the best way to make connections. Media is also a very big industry and there are so many parts to it. What I thought I wanted to go into in college, and where I ended up are very different, so don’t be afraid to try something new and see how you like it. The experience in different fields will provide more value to you as you build your career. To provide more perspective, I asked our team what their advice would be and our VP of Sales provided, “Find something you are passionate about and attack it with full force. Do whatever it takes to stand out from the competition and get the job you want. If you get the chance to bet on yourself, do it! It might seem scary but when you follow your passion and bet on yourself to succeed, good things will happen.”
The common theme is that if you have passion, put yourself out there because potential employers love to see passion and excitement for the industry.
We are a national company, based on the east coast, serving everywhere from Canada to Hawaii and everywhere in between! Our inventory is everywhere and that allows us to work with just about anyone in any market they want to target. However, I am based in Dallas and am proud to have called DFW my home for many years!
I personally have been involved in AWM for several years and when I moved to join the team at Carvertise I was a big champion for getting involved with AWM. We’ve now been sponsors for two years.
Once you learn about the mission and involvement of AWM and the impact they have, it is a no brainer to want to support the organization. Not only do they support our active community, but have a huge focus on developing the next generation and bringing more and more talent into our industry.
Media is exciting and no two days are the same. There are always new things to learn, new products created, and we continue to see more and more integration making the industry stronger. To be a part of that is something I love and can’t see myself doing anything else. Not to mention the people and community are truly amazing and once you are in, you are hooked!
