There’s no doubt about it: A new generation of direct marketing is upon us, signaled by the increasing power of data, dynamic content, and the advances in digital production. Naturally, finding new talent to support IWCO Direct well into the future is a top priority—and University of Wisconsin-Stout’s Career Conference is one of the richest sources we’ve found for locating those up-and-comers.
We’ve attended the UW-Stout Career Conference for nearly a decade. During that time, we’ve hired UW-Stout students and grads for a variety of internships and full-time positions. We’ve placed UW-Stout grads in technical writing, client services, sales, and a variety of other positions at IWCO Direct.
What Makes UW-Stout a Great Place to Find the Next Generation of Direct Marketing Talent
There’s a reason we keep coming back to the well of talent that is UW-Stout: It’s a valuable resource for our recruiting efforts for several reasons, not least of which because the university’s marketing-adjacent programs, such as Cross-Media Graphics Management, prepare its students well for positions within our company—from client and creative services to scheduling, operations, and more.
But all of that ignores a key component of any recruitment effort: What will you, the applicant, get out of a career at IWCO Direct? In addition to providing a great starting point for your career in direct marketing, we offer great mentorship, coaching, and learning opportunities with some of the most highly-recognized professionals from every discipline within the industry.
