CEO Joseph Blanco and his company JobPrepped are revolutionizing the way in which people get their first marketing job by providing the immediate training and the exact work experience hiring managers want marketing applicants to have. After spending almost a decade hiring and training Marketing and Sales professionals for a Fortune 500 company, Joseph noticed 2 main reasons why people struggled to get hired for marketing jobs.
First, most entry-level marketing applicants didn’t have the right work experience hiring managers wanted and work experience is the #1 thing hiring managers look at in determining who to hire. Joseph states that getting good work experience can be incredibly hard to get and even when one gets an internship, they often don’t provide the right work experience hiring managers want as interns often find themselves doing the same tasks over and over again as companies don’t have enough time to train interns and companies don’t trust interns with important tasks.
Secondly, when it came time for interviews, Joseph states that hiring managers could quickly see how little most applicants knew about digital marketing which is the role most companies are hiring for. Joseph noticed a widening gap between what universities taught (more traditional marketing) and what companies need; experience in digital marketing like Social Media, Email, PPC, and SEO Marketing.
Joseph decided that something needed to be done to help those wanting to start a career in marketing get jobs more easily. So, he created JobPrepped which gives people the exact training and work experience they need immediately so they get hired faster. JobPrepped’s new model of training and giving immediate work experience is already proving to be very successful as 94.3% of JobPrepped customers receive marketing interviews or job offers within 3 weeks.
JobPrepped’s program is designed to turn their customers into the perfect entry-level marketing applicant by giving them exactly what hiring managers want throughout the entire application process.
First, they’re tackling the knowledge gap by training their customers in all the areas of digital marketing that hiring managers want including Social Media Marketing, Email Marketing, PPC Marketing, SEO Marketing, Lead Generation and more.
Next, JobPrepped gives their customers immediate work experience in the exact areas hiring managers want. All work experience is 100% optional, there aren’t any deadlines, and JobPrepped customers get to work 1-on-1 with a former top-level Marketing and Sales Executive from a Fortune 500 company. Joseph states that this is the most important part of their program as this is the only place people can get the exact work experience hiring managers want immediately.
Finally, JobPrepped helps fix their customers’ resumés to ensure they get interviews quickly and then teaches their customers exactly what marketing strategies to pitch during their interviews to ensure they ace them.
JobPrepped’s model of being able to immediately get the exact work experience one needs is truly exciting and hopefully this concept will allow more people to get jobs they love.
