Marketers unite! On September 12, marketing professionals from all over the Hudson Valley will gather for an open, free mixer where they can “talk shop,” meet others from their industry, discuss job openings and find talent to fill them. The event is being hosted by DragonSearch (www.dragonsearchmarketing.com) from 5-7pm at our 280 Wall Street (2nd floor) location.
“We feel it is high time to bring marketers together and connect them with others in the region, generate new ideas and meet talented people eager to work,” said Ric Dragon, CEO and co-founder of DragonSearch. “Our company has been doing some great work at the edge of digital marketing which is quite exciting to talk about and, we have a few career positions open as well.”
The Marketing Professionals Mixer is open to anyone interested in connecting with other Hudson Valley marketers and learning about what is happening in the industry. According to representatives from the Kingston Digital Corridor, a grassroots organization that connects area technology professionals, the atmosphere for digital marketing, entrepreneurship and growth is hotter than ever.
“Kingston, and the whole Hudson Valley, has become a hub for digital technology, both in development and in a myriad of other applications,” says Mark Marshall, Kingston Digital Corridor organizer. “Whether we’re talking about video/audio production, graphic arts, web development or social media marketing, it’s happening all around us. We’re excited to attend this mixer and share the ways that new technology is changing everything.”
Refreshments will be offered and the event is free. Attendees are asked to register so that DragonSearch can plan accordingly. Register through EventBrite.
The Marketing Professionals Mixer will also introduce people looking for new career positions to companies looking for talented individuals. Job seekers are encouraged to bring their resumes so they can discuss opportunities on the spot.
“We have openings in every area of our company,” said Dragon. “We’re looking for bright, enthusiastic, eager-to-learn professionals in Search Engine Optimization, Pay Per Click Marketing and Social Media Marketing. Other companies in the region are also hiring and I hope they’ll attend too.”
