Q&A With a Merritt Group-er: Get to Know Jonathan Schubert

 LinkedIn-Q&A-JS

What do you do at Merritt Group?

I’m an account coordinator for the Government Practice at Merritt Group supporting the day-to-day operations on our federal accounts.

What’s your greatest moment — whether in work, school or marketing/PR — so far?

I would have to say getting the chance to be a part of Merritt Group has been my biggest highlight. I’m still pretty early on in my career so being in a position where I was involved in so many different things from day one has been such a great experience!

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

On Twitter I definitely appreciate the Associated Press Oddities account (@AP_Oddities). The headlines they run are worth at least a couple laughs.

What’s the one gadget you think needs to be invented?

I feel like we’re long overdue for actual hoverboards. That’s doable, right?

What’s your favorite thing about living in the Washington, D.C., area?

I actually just moved out here from Southern California a few months ago, so I’m still brand new to D.C., but I love all the history in the area. I’m a sucker for a good museum and D.C. does not disappoint!

What do you love to do when you are not working?

I love to go hiking. I’ve been told Virginia has a ton of great spots, so I’m planning on spending a lot of time doing that. When I can, I enjoy sneaking in some time to play my guitar too.

What are your podcast recommendations?

If you’re into music like me, I’d recommend Song Exploder. They bring on different musicians each episode and have them break down how they wrote a particular song piece by piece. It’s a really interesting look into the creative process musicians go through.

What's your favorite Merritt Group memory?

I’d say pretty much every holiday or activity we’ve had since I started has been great! Everything from our football potluck and Valentines Day, to our Bachelor and basketball brackets. There’s always something fun going on at Merritt Group! 

What's one thing you can't live without?

Binge watching can be a serious problem for me, so there’s no way I could survive without Netflix.

What's the most interesting item on your desk?

I have a miniature version of Hearst Castle, which was a mansion owned by the famous newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst back in the early 20th century. The actual place is well worth a visit if you’re ever in California!
