Talent Zoo Likes ‘Em Wild

Rick Myers, President of Talent Zoo was kind enough to call earlier this week and ask, “How can we help you succeed?” More on that later.
Anyway, this doesn’t happen everyday in the blogosphere, nor in life. So it’s always a sweet moment to know there’s someone out there and that they don’t hate you.
Okay, it’s later. We’re going to start prominently featuring Talent Zoo ad banners on this site. And I’m preparing to write an article for Talent Zoo’s “Career Center” section. It’s going to be a continuation on Get Going In Advertising, a piece I wrote for Omaha ad industry event, “Meet The Pros,” in 2002.
I’ll be in good company on Talent Zoo, as the Atlanta recruiting firm already features one humorist in its pages. Clevelander, Danny G., has built a dedicated following with wry wit and fearless discharge of pro-reform diatribes.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
