Looking Back on Five Years
By Jenni Izzo
Today marks my five-year anniversary with Costa Communications Group (CCG). I graduated from Drexel University in Philadelphia on June 13, and started working at the agency three days later. I’ll be the first to admit I never thought I’d reach this milestone. I was convinced I’d move back to Philly, maybe try my luck in NYC or simply go to the “next best thing.” My generation is of the mindset that you “just need to put in your two years,” then move on to something new. What isn’t considered nearly as often is the perks of growing up and evolving in one place. I look around CCG and see colleagues who have worked here for 8-12 years – and as I join those long-term ranks, I see why.
Looking back on the past five years, I have some advice to share with the recently graduated.
