After a year with City Year Chicago (AmeriCorps/Non-Profit) and 10+ years working in Advertising, Marketing and Digital PR, I transitioned to be a Recruiter of Creative and Marketing Professionals for two years. As of August 2014, I am a Career Coach and Lecturer with a focus on business marketing undergrads.

Throughout my career, I have worked in a variety of agencies. The reasons are fairly simple - I have an interest in advertising and communications and love how to figure out the best way for brands to interact with their customers. The shifts in the industry allowed me to grow from traditional mediums through the interactive/digital space.

As for my agency/client experience, I have worked with Corporate, CPG, QSR, Consumer, Healthcare, B2C, B2B, Telecom and Internal Communication groups. I have worked on all kinds of projects: print, online, events, premiums, promotions, video, sales presentations, online advertising, digital content/technology applications & social media.

In recruiting, I helped to place top talent with brands who need their creative and marketing skills for their incredible variety of projects and now help coach Marketing undergrads to do the same.

Throughout every role, I have definitely grown an appreciation for the PEOPLE that I have worked with. And now, I have seen what hiring managers are looking for and the best ways for candidates to represent themselves...or even find new avenues for work!

    Erin's energy was amazing and her subject matter was very inspiring. She took the time to get to know a bit about each attendee so she could cater her presentation to what each of us wanted to get out of the evening and I found this very helpful. Erin certainly knows what she is talking about and has the experience to back it up! I would recommend this particular class experience to anyone, not just those looking to land jobs in in creative and marketing fields--her advice/tips could be helpful over a wide range of careers. SIGN UP FOR HER NEXT CLASS. You won't regret it. :)

    Erin’s down-to-earth and highly informative presentation simply contained interview-scoring strategies that people probably are already aware of but can revisit in a new light. As a copywriting enthusiast strongly recommended to pursue other parts of the industry, I have yet to find networking events with expert professionals who’ll clarify marketing’s counterparts to creative advertising. She was spot-on in suggesting two subfields I’d be offered a job interview in that same night over LinkedIn InMail- coincidence, I think not!

    Very helpful. Erin was wonderful in learning about all of us,so she could personalise her class to help meet each of our concerns and needs. As my first Dabble class, I'd happily attend more, especially Erin's.
