Please describe your experience at Talent Day.
Lorraine: Talent Day was great! I had seen many of the companies throughout my job searches and it was valuable being able to meet with them directly and give my resume and a sense of my skills in person. It was a very busy event, however I was able to meet with all of the companies I intended to.
 

What it was like to network and connect with great companies like Drive Digital?
Lorraine: Networking and connecting with companies at Talent Day was a great experience, and allowed me to get a feel for company culture and the type of people they were looking for. I had heard of Drive Digital before the event, so I made sure to meet the team in person and get a sense of the position they were hiring for.
 

Now that you’ve been able to find an awesome new role from Talent Day, what is life at Drive Digital like?
Lorraine: Life at Drive is awesome – I’m really enjoying my new job and especially the company culture. Being a recent grad it was very important to me to find a place where I could grow and continue improving my skills, and Drive has all of that and more. The company has a very laid-back atmosphere, which I love, as it makes even the more stressful times during deadlines fun.
