MEC to Hire New Talent Same Day at Advertising Week

Media Agency Searching for Top Entry Level Talent With 'MEC Live Hire' Event

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 22, 2015) - MEC, a leading global media agency, announces a live hiring event to take place at this year’s Advertising Week kicking off on September 28th in New York City. The innovative recruitment experience will attract bright and passionate up and coming entry level talent for live on the ground interviews with MEC executives, with the goal of extending offers to top Associate candidates the same day.

Commenting on the agency’s efforts, Marie-Claire Barker, Chief Talent Officer, MEC Global, said, "MEC has a talent ambition of being renowned for changing the face of talent management in our industry. Over the past decade, the advertising and marketing landscape has evolved drastically, yet as an industry we are still relying on tried and tested methods of acquiring talent. With this new approach we aim to disrupt the industry norm to attract the next generation of entrepreneurs, innovators, and achievers to deliver for our agency and our clients."

MEC Live Hire will take place on Monday, September 28th from 9am - 5pm outside The Times Center at 242 West 41st Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues), New York, NY 10036.

MEC Live Hire is an evolution of MEC’s speed interviewing-style hiring practice piloted in New York earlier this year, which results in same day offers to Associate level talent. Using this behavioral-led approach to assessing cultural fit has enabled the agency to be more effective and efficient in identifying, recruiting and securing top talent. This style of interviews will launch throughout MEC North America in 2015.
