The Austin Digital Jobs group (ADJ) celebrates the tremendous talent where we’re headquartered and boasts over 46,000 members (so far). We’re devoted to retaining talent in Austin and attracting new brands, and letting our hair down while we do it. We offer a quarterly mixer, cramming a venue full of the city’s most popular employers alongside highly qualified, eager talent.
To help us see what we have in common while simultaneously showcasing our diversity, we’re launching “Humans of ADJ” as a nod to the famous photo essay project, “Humans of New York.” We’d like to feature you, but first, let’s talk more about this lil’ project!
WHO – if you’re a member of our rowdy Facebook Group, you’re eligible. It’s that easy. Whether you’re job hunting or seeking talent, we want to tell your story!
WHAT – instead of a photo essay, for now, we’ll be focusing on stories and long-form interviews. The goal is to learn more about each other as humans. We want to showcase things less obvious about ourselves – a game developer who plays professional rugby, a digital marketing strategist who has lived in 12 countries, a UX pro who served 23 years in the Navy, a technical writer who is currently fostering 12 animals and bottle feeding 5… you get the idea.
We are more than our job titles. Every single one of us. We sincerely seek to demonstrate the uniqueness of folks in this town in hopes that we can connect with each other more meaningfully.
WHEN – our goal is to profile one member each week on this website, and we’ll share it and put out a call in the Group weekly as well.
We won’t be able to feature every single applicant, but we’ll do our best – we’d be honored to feature you! We believe the responses may be voluminous, so please give us time to respond!
