You are passionate about the paid online advertising space and want to use that passion for good. Hopefully, you’ve had experience with large ad spends for major companies or organizations, racking up experience in SEM, display, Google Ads, Bing, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.
