Naeemah M. – Marketing and Communication Intern
Shaquara D. – Assistant Account Executive
It is always a struggle to find a job in your field. However, I was determined to pursue a job at a brand marketing agency. At the beginning of the pandemic, I began to get discouraged and disappointed that I had not found my dream job. When I found out about The L3 Agency through Brittany Applegate I was elated. My interview with Larvetta and Mia was so refreshing that it felt like I was talking to my lifetime mentors. When I received the job offer, I knew this was my time and the moment I had been waiting for. Usually during the first week it can be somewhat awkward and challenging especially since I was training virtually.
Nevertheless, my first week at L3 was like walking into a family members’ home. All the squad ladies were patient as I navigated the agency’s culture. I quickly learned that I was going to fit well here. It is an empowering environment where I can come with questions and offer suggestions if I don’t understand something.
During my first week I instantly felt that I was a part of the squad and not just “the new person.” I was put onto new client meetings and tasks right away which motivated me. It demonstrated their confidence in me and my capabilities to not only work with the team but to make a valuable contribution in this role. I appreciate the squad of The L3 Agency for being so warm and I am very excited for what is to come.
