The FreeWheel Council for Premium Video (FWC) and the New York and Philadelphia chapters of the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) recently hosted an online event featuring several widely recognized “Premium Video Pros.” The event offered attendees guidance and recommendations for pursuing careers in video advertising technology and related fields, including information about currently available jobs at the panelists’ companies.

 

Panelists included:

  • Beth Crotty, Executive Director at Cox Media, where she focuses on developing and enhancing best-in-class advertising solutions for local businesses;
  • Anthony Greene, Vice President at Gamut, a next-generation digital advertising agency and part of the Cox Media Group;
  • Jermaine Roseman, Senior Director for Advanced Advertising Solutions at A+E Networks; and
  • Misha Williams, Vice President for the Global Client Services organization at FreeWheel, a Comcast company.

 

Moderator James Rothwell, Vice President of Comcast Advertising, asked the panelists to relate how they found their respective paths into the industry. Panelist backgrounds range from sales and product and partnership management to software programming, systems analysis, and cloud computing.

 

Anthony Greene went to school for communications and was a graphic designer when he discovered internships. An internship is “a great way” to enter and explore this industry, Anthony said. Panelists agreed, and noted that their respective companies were looking for interns as well as those seeking more formal engagements. And unlike many past internships, those in today’s TV advertising industry are often paid well. Interns also get to combine functional work with professional development, which “pays dividends over time,” Beth Crotty said. “We do a good job of preparing our interns for the workforce, and we hire a good number of them,” she added.

 

The panel offered multiple additional interesting and valuable observations, reflections, and recommendations. In addition, a current list of open positions at all the panelists’ companies was made available to webinar attendees.
