For the long-time readers of Idaho Ad Agencies, you may remember that there used to be a page inside the Jobs and Talent section of the site that listed a variety of folks who were either looking for jobs, available for freelance work, or in other similar situations.
Unfortunately, that section was neglected for far too long, and much of it was outdated at best.
I’m wondering, however, if there’s enough interest in resurrecting that part of the site again, either in its original format or as something different. I’m still a fan of having an area where those who are looking for work or talent can find each other.
Thoughts? Leave a comment and let me know.
Here at Idaho Ad Agencies, we’ve long counted on tips and contributions from others, and for years Don Day’s Idaho Radio News site was one we turned to for all things radio-related.
And today we’re happy to announce that Don has now become a contributor to the Idaho Ad Agencies site. Look for posts from him, and his unique perspective on the media, advertising and marketing from time to time.
Welcome aboard Don.
Peppershock Media Productions has added two new faces to their staff:
Janine Nirei has joined Peppershock as their “Air Traffic Controller” a.k.a. Marketing Assistant. Prior to relocating to Idaho, Janine was an Account Executive at Laird Christianson Advertising in Hawaii.
Jana Jeffery has also joined Peppershock, working in the Business Development and Project Management space. Jana is currently working on a contract-basis, and her success will be determined as part of a nine-week “Sizzle or Fizzle” evaluation taking place online, at savemybaconstrip.com, and the accompanying Facebook page and Twitter profile.
Congratulations to both.
Incidentally, it’s worth noting that both of these folks were listed on the Available Talent page of the Idaho Ad Agencies site. For agencies and other businesses looking for talent, this is a good place to start your search. For individuals who are on the job hunt, make sure that you’ve got your information to us — you never know who might be looking for talent.
…for the moment at least.
Because this is the point at which I get to say that the Idaho Ad Agencies blog is now the award-winning Idaho Ad Agencies blog.
Bear with me – the boasting will be over soon.
The Idaho Ad Agencies blog recently received an Excellence award at Capital City Communicator’s inaugural IMPACT Awards. It was one of 31 winners in 15 categories at the event, which also included awards to our friends at Rizen Creative, Red Sky Public Relations, FusionSet, Murphy Media Services, SOVRN Creative and many more.
So with that little bit of bragging out of the way, we offer a hearty congratulations to all of this year’s winners.
We now return you to your regularly-scheduled programming already in progress.

No, this is not some belated April Fool’s Day joke.
I’ve joined Stoltz Marketing Group as Interactive Services Manager. I’ll be working with a variety of key accounts, and will be involved with a number of client and agency initiatives in the online space. Long-time readers of the Idaho Ad Agencies blog are familiar with my past experience and history, so I’ll spare you the details here.
But fear not, dear readers — the Idaho Ad Agencies blog will continue much as it has in the past. Like the industry, it has evolved over time, and will continue to do so into the future.
