When you enter the workforce straight out of college you are looking for a job with a few basic attributes to jump start your career in a successful way. These basic attributes include finding a job that you enjoy, working with smart dedicated colleagues and feeling supported during your career journey. I instantly found all of these things at DeVries and jumped on board as their social media coordinator.
But then I got a pleasant surprise.
The enjoyment I found at DeVries goes beyond working with great people and being supported from all levels of management. They work hard to make each person in the agency feel like they are part of a family. There are a number of flexible work schedules and options available to accommodate life circumstances. Summertime weather is celebrated by closing early every Friday. Between manicure Mondays, yoga Wednesdays and summer service days in which we take a day off to work with the community – DeVries is dedicated to being a great place to work.
I was not surprised at all when I heard last week that we made the Holmes Report Top 30 North American agencies to work for list.
In the two years that I have been at DeVries they have proved time and time again to be dedicated to Diversity and Inclusion, to be proactive in giving to the community and to be supportive of their staff.
