When our managing editor delivered my formal job offer two years ago, there were two stipulations:
- That I did my work well and on time (obviously); and
- That I dress up for the Trueline Halloween party, because “We’ve had 100% participation two years running and I’ll be darned if we allow anyone to jeopardize that streak.” (I’m paraphrasing.)
There are three certainties in life: Death, taxes and Trueline being named one of the Best Places to Work in Maine.
Four media executives share advice on hiring and employee retention in today’s cut-throat job market
In media, there are lots of question marks: What’s the next big platform? Should we go fully digital, and stop printing our publication entirely? Is programmatic advertising right for us? One thing’s for certain: No one will get ahead by following the rules, perhaps especially when it comes to hiring.
How high up on the ladder are we as one of the top 75 places to work in Maine? We’re not sure. We’ll find out later this year.
For now, we’re ecstatic that we made the list of Best Places to Work in Maine for the third year running.
Got talent? You’ll need it to be successful in today’s publishing world, but finding it and knowing it can be a challenge.
Anyone interested in the topic can attend a roundtable discussion this fall. Led by our CEO, Haj Carr, and two other publishing executives, “Building A Publishing Dream Team,” is among many events being held at The Folio: Show, a two-day media event and awards ceremony at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.
The TrueLine Publishing team made a great showing at the 2017 Best Places to Work in ME award ceremony with nearly a dozen team members in tow.
We’re excited to share that Vanguard, our international law publication, has received high honors at the 2017 Magazine Media Awards! The awards, presented by min, which has hosted event and coverage of a variety of media for over 70 years, honor brand excellence, with special emphasis on longevity and scope of operation.
2017 has been a huge year for TrueLine – we’ve launched new magazines, we’ve been named one of the best places to work in Maine (again!), TrueLine Public Relations is no longer an idea – it’s a thriving company and Haj Carr, our CEO has earned a spot on the 2017 Folio: 100.
NYC, here we come! Haj Carr, TLP CEO, will kick off the 2017 Folio: Show conference in New York City with a paneled learning session titled Ditch the Pitch: How to Build Quality Client Relationships.
