The newest member of our team and recent Eastern Illinois University graduate, Dallas Racklin, was invited back to speak at his alma mater about the activities and organizations that he was a part of while in school, jobs held prior to graduation, interview tips, as well as the resources used to get him to where he is, today.
Dallas graduated with a marketing degree in the spring of 2017 and was able to lend some helpful advice to students who are getting ready to enter the workforce. Along with interviewing tips, Dallas was able to talk about our own team and what we specialize in.
Though he has only been part of the team for a short while, Dallas has quickly learned about the industry and why it is crucial for businesses to have a website, and the benefits of having Squirrel Works manage a company’s digital presence. It’s no longer just about being online, it’s about using your platforms to create a presence that connects and engages with customers, with the hopes of growing your business.
Dallas says that he was excited about having the chance to talk to current students so that he could help them with their future job searches and improve their chances of landing their next interview!
Since starting with our team, Dallas says that there are a lot of cool new apps and tools that he has learned about. His goal for his speaking arrangement was to be able to show some of the students which tools and resources we use each day, so that when they enter the workforce, they have an advantage.
Our team thanks the Eastern Illinois American Marketing Association for giving Dallas the chance to speak and we look forward to many opportunities similar to this in the future.
