504ward open house results in three new hires

On March 7, 2012, Peter Mayer and 504ward teamed up to host an open house for candidates interested in job opportunities at Peter Mayer. 504ward sent an email to its database of 8,000+ contacts, promoting Peter Mayer as a top employer in the New Orleans area and inviting them to apply for positions. Two hundred candidates applied, and Peter Mayer HR narrowed the field down to 29 people to invite to an evening reception and job fair at Peter Mayer’s office. Those 29 candidates participated in a speed interview process, meeting one-on-one with hiring managers from every department in the agency. A small group of those candidates were invited back for more interviews and eventually, these three were hired:

Rebecca Hollis – Senior Art Director
Shira Pinsker – Community Manager
Ignacio Lorenzo – Senior Web Analyst

Thanks to 504ward and all the candidates who participated. This was a great way for Peter Mayer to connect with marketing talent in the New Orleans region. We hope to continue this partnership with 504ward.
