Mission: Ketchum's vision is to be the most valued agency in the world. We will deliver value and accelerated growth by offering campaign-leading ideas with earned content at the core and communicated across the full PESO (paid, earned, shared, owned) spectrum.
I have been working at Ketchum full-time (More than 5 years)
Have been here my entire career, and have been lucky to have great clients, smart co-workers, wonderful managers and all the resources you'd expect to find at a big agency (research, digital, graphics, facilities, etc.).
Ketchum over-invested in digital for a few years, and forgot how to do media relations. While we can do great programming, I'm concerned about our ability to deliver on day-to-day news engine programming.
I applied online. I interviewed at Ketchum (New York, NY).
I applied online then did not hear back for a month and a half. Finally heard from HR about scheduling a phone screening which went well, so I was asked to come in for in person interviews with two of the associate creative directors. The interviews lasted about a half hour each and were very painless and pleasant. One of the associates even told me I was her favorite candidate for the job that she had met with. I left feeling very confident that the job would soon be mine. I sent thank you emails to everyone I met with. HR said they got "very positive feedback" from the people I had met with, and she would be in touch soon to discuss "next steps." After that I did not hear from anyone at Ketchum for about two months. I later emailed HR after I received an offer from a different firm, just out of curiosity, to which I was told that they did not have any openings available at that time. I was strung along for three months by them, and then they did not even have the decency to tell me they selected another candidate. Hindsight I am glad I am not working at Ketchum because I am now at a job with actual standards of professional etiquette and human decency and I am much happier.
