“If you like ordinary, MEC is not for you. If ‘beyond comfort’ thrills you, if ‘expanding possible’ attracts, then you’ll do your best work there. You’ll do it because they’ll provoke you, challenge you and unashamedly ask for more.”

MEC 'Live Hire'

MEC's Live Hire shook up Advertising Week like never before. (Watch here)
MEC Live Hire
24 Aug 2016
Job hunting may be one of the most horrific experiences newbies to the workforce have to endure. GroupM-owned MEC decided to compress the entire process for a lucky 10 hires last fall into a one-day process, from interview to hire (or rejection). On Sept. 28, the first day of Advertising Week in New York, MEC set up outdoor tents along West 41st Street, just outside the Times Center (one of Advertising Week's nerve centers), where it interviewed candidates for entry-level positions IRL, in millennial parlance (for the rest of us, that's "in real life"). MEC says it adopted a "behavioral" approach to mimic a speed-dating round, and both global CEO Charles Courtier and North American CEO Marla Kaplowitz took part. In the end, 10 candidates were hired on the spot, and #MECLive emerged as one of the top hashtags at the event.
