What do you do at Merritt Group? 

My title is Recruiter, which is the majority of what I do but I also work with my awesome boss, Colleen, on Human Resources tasks such as planning events and working on our benefits programs. No day is the same and I love that. It is my job to find the best and brightest in the marketing and public relations world and then convince them to come work for us.

Q&A With a Merritt Group-er: Get to Know Brooke McClary

What do you do at Merritt Group?

I am currently an intern working across the cybersecurity and government practice groups. This is my first time in an agency, so I’m busy learning the ropes. Day-to-day, I assist in everything from social media planning, to pitching reporters, to basic account management for a variety of clients.

Who do you love to follow on Twitter or Instagram and why?

Washingtonian Magazine (@washingtonianmag), BYT (@brightestyoungthings) and Edible DC (@edible_DC) are the publications I follow on Instagram to keep up with trends and the newest D.C. hot spots. I also follow @happyhensandhighlands because Highland Cows are completely adorable and grossly underappreciated.
