With college graduation fast approaching, we thought it would be great to have a few of our AMA board members discuss some tips and best practices for getting your first job in the marketing and communications field.
We’ve split the content into three sections:
- Pre-Approach: What to do BEFORE you start sending out resumés and applying for positions.
- Approach: What to do DURING your job hunt.
- First 90 days: What to do when you first get hired.
Today, we’ll cover the “Pre-Approach.” In this 30-minute video, Matt, Hanedi, and Logan discuss how job seekers can make themselves more attractive to hiring managers and others who influence candidate selection. Enjoy!

Logan Mayville grew up in the foothills of Northern California and first discovered an interest in digital marketing while applying for jobs at the height of the 2008 recession. By building a personal website, publishing content, and networking on social media, he saw the power of digital marketing to achieve results and never looked back. Since then, he’s become an expert in direct-response, Facebook ads, and copywriting while helping hundreds of small businesses grow through consulting, coaching, and hands-on service delivery with his own company.
Now, Logan runs the business development and marketing programs for Post Modern Marketing, helping new clients identify their true needs and unlock growth for their businesses in collaboration with the PMM team. When he’s not head down at work you can find Logan wrenching on a vintage motorcycle, playing competitive table tennis, typing letters on his Underwood portable, or hiking through the mountains.
