My name is Kemet Sloan and I am a Digital Marketing Coordinator at KLIK. I grew up in the Washington D.C. metro area and attended the University of Maryland majoring in Economics. Through my coursework at Maryland, I became interested in data analytics. I found the classes I enjoyed most were focused on collecting data and using it to solve problems and make informed decisions.
After I graduated I interned with a startup company where I helped report on marketing efforts. This exposed me to the marketing industry and led to my interest in digital marketing. Following my internship, I landed a job in accounting at a property management company where I handled residents’ account finances. I enjoyed my experience, but accounting wasn’t a field I was excited about. I knew I wanted to pursue a career in data analytics or marketing. Before pursuing a change in career paths, I decided to further my skills by completing certifications in data analytics and digital marketing. Once completed, I started my search for positions in the fields of digital marketing and data analytics.
During my job search, I stumbled upon KLIK. What first caught my attention was KLIK’s emphasis on being a performance marketing agency that has been “focused on data from day one.” Reading more about KLIK, I found the company more appealing because of its startup status and ambition to become the largest, most effective, and most data-forward marketing agency in the world. It was significant to see KLIK named the 3rd fastest growing ad agency in the world by Ad Week proving the company was intent on achieving its goal. To me KLIK seemed like the perfect blend of my interest in both data analytics and digital marketing – so I decided to apply.
My first month at KLIK has been a great experience. I immediately felt welcomed as a part of the team and feel like I can reach out to anyone if I needed assistance. With everyone I’ve worked with it has been evident how passionate the team is about data, marketing, and KLIK. It has been refreshing to be a part of a team where everyone is so motivated to succeed together and achieve the best results possible for our clients. I have already begun to strengthen my digital marketing and daily account management skill set. I am excited for the opportunity to continuously learn and advance with the team KLIK towards becoming the best ad agency!
