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.

Merritt Groupers kicked off the season of giving on Tuesday with a trip to Head Start, a branch of Northern Virginia Family Service’s (NVFS) early education program. The Head Start program is designed to promote school readiness in low-income children ages 3 to 5, who may otherwise find themselves behind their peers in preparedness once they reach kindergarten. Through educational, health, nutritional, social and other services, Head Start enhances the cognitive development of the children who participate.

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.
