I graduated from Indiana University with a degree in information technology about a year ago. While I was worried about not finding a full-time position directly out of school, I knew I needed to further my professional skills in order to achieve the career goals I had set for myself. About that same time, I was lucky enough to cross paths with another I.U. grad, John Henry, CEO of JH Specialty. He offered me a part time internship at JH Specialty. I was honored and happily accepted the position.
While I knew this opportunity would prove to be challenging, I also knew how valuable the opportunity was and the immense knowledge I would gain from working at the digital marketing company. It was the perfect spot for an information technology grad.
Upon starting out, I was involved with search engine optimization, also known as SEO. I quickly realized the benefits of SEO and how it presents businesses, both large and small, the opportunity to be found via search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. In my professional opinion, SEO is one of the most valuable assets any company can utilize in regards to online marketing.
As I continued learning about SEO, I was also sharpening my developmental skills and learning from some of the best developers in Northern Indiana. This was a priceless opportunity and lead to a full time position, as I started full time at JH Specialty in March of 2012.
Not only has working at JH Specialty been an invaluable decision for my professional development, it has also been a great work environment and place to grow. JH Specialty has been voted One of the Best Places to Work four years in a row. After just a few weeks of starting my internship, I understood why. The JH Specialty team, while extremely dedicated to the work that we do as well as professionalism, also knows how to have a good time. what other place allows Nerf Gun fights in the office! Not to mention, JH Specialty's game room consisting of a ping-pong table, Xbox 360 and Wii. JH Specialty even caters in lunch for the entire office to enjoy every other week. JH Specialty seems to have it all and is by far, a great place to work!
I don't know of another team that is so drives, knowledgeable, experience and so fun to be a part of. I love coming to work everyday, which is something few people can truly say. JH Specialty, simply put, is one of the best places to work in the Midwest. Our team continues to grow as demand increases for digital marketing solutions.
