Meet the EG Minis!

Meet the EG Minis!

Every summer, Evergreen has a tradition of welcoming a college intern to the team. The program has been a great success, providing interns interested in careers involving sales, marketing, design, photography, writing and more with an opportunity to gain some valuable real-world experience and establish a professional network. For the first time ever, we decided to expand the program this year, quadrupling the number of interns. Each has a different career interest, and all are excited for the opportunity to spend the summer learning various tools and tricks of the trade. They aren’t full-time employees but are much more than minions, so we are calling them our EG Minis.

They are one of the most effective networking opportunities you’ll find. An added bonus is the fact that you can stealthily gauge your competition.

Tips for a Good Headshot

Tips for a Good Headshot

Career-minded individuals looking to make a positive impression should invest in a professional headshot. Appearances matter; whether networking, searching for clients, or applying for that dream job, you’ll want to put your best face forward (literally). Your selfie game may be on point, but save those shaky handheld phone pics for your Instagram account. Instead, hire a professional photographer for a high-resolution, visually-appealing headshot. They are experts in composition, lighting, and editing and know exactly how to create a perfect shot that showcases your most valuable asset – you!

Unplug for Self-Care

Unplug for Self-Care

If you’re like most people, you spend far more time on your phone than you’d care to admit. This obsession with technology is universal – and not exactly healthy. Smartphones have become our go-to options for entertainment, even when we should be spending our time on other pursuits. We joke about our addictions, but experts don’t believe it’s a laughing matter.

Since the early 1900’s, the American Advertising Federation (AAF) has been unifying the voice of advertising and connecting professionals across the nation.

In 2016, Evergreen Media entered into our local chapter’s American Advertising Awards — one of the industry’s largest creative competitions, attracting nearly 35,000 professional and student entries each year across the country. We walked away with a Silver for an external client project and knew we would be back.

This year, we are honored to announce Evergreen Media has won both a Gold and Silver ADDY for two client projects we’ve had the opportunity working on this past year.

Entries that receive the coveted Gold ADDY for being recognized as the highest level of creative excellence are automatically forwarded onto the next tier of the competition. Follow along on Facebook as we hear more details!

More than coffee runs

In order to graduate from the Graphic Design program at Black Hills State University, I am required to have an internship of 150 hours, and each hour needs to be logged, notes need to be taken, and examples of my work need to be provided. I was on the hunt for an internship when Rick had brought it to my attention Evergreen Media hires interns.

Although that was the first encounter I had with Rick the Owner and Publisher of Evergreen Media, I knew Rick the Dedicated Coach long before that. I grew up living in the world of softball, and spent many weekends watching and learning from Rick, as he coached my sister. Since my time here at Evergreen I have realized Rick the Dedicated Coach, and Rick the Owner and Publisher of Evergreen Media, aren’t that much different. He took a chance with me – just as he did with the many girls he has coached over the years.
