COVID-19 & Our Specialist Program

Since COVID-19 began upending the world as we know it, our Specialists have had the opportunity to work entirely remotely. Most of them have taken the chance to do so, with a few electing to work in office following COVID-protocols. Since then, we’ve had three full Specialist programs come and go. We feel, and our surveys of Specialists show, that this program continues to be highly successful in accomplishing its goals through COVID-19.

That being said, we are looking for Specialists to work from our offices this fall, if the pandemic conditions do not worsen. Our offices are located in New Orleans, Atlanta, and Washington, DC. We will accept Specialist candidates from any of these locations.

Real Work, Real Experience

This opportunity isn’t about getting your boss coffee–we have a cold brew on tap for that. You’ll spend your time here working on real assignments and projects. In addition, when your department director attends networking events and educational lunches, we’ll be sending you as well, ticket included.

A majority of our full-time team started at Online Optimism as Specialists, and many of our Specialists go on to work at some of the top digital marketing agencies around.

Bettering Our Community

As part of our efforts to educate, inform, and improve our work, our Optimists often attend networking and educational events. We believe this need extends to our Specialists as well. While you are a Specialist at Online Optimism, we’ll be sending you to at least 2 virtual networking events that emphasize the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in marketing. You’ll also have the opportunity to join our organization’s bookclub, and participate in other efforts that our agency is working toward.
