When I arrived for my job interview I thought I was applying for Al Borde (one of our hip, alternative brands). As I walked in I thought to myself, “This isn’t Al Borde. What is this place?” It turned out to be the parent company, El Clasificado. Long story short, it was the best career move I ever made. This company nurtures talent. If you got it, then you are moving. No, not from your home, but UP!! The process hasn’t been easy, but the challenges, exciting!! Here you find yourself creating the logo of a brand, the promotional art, directing a photoshoot and booking a band to play at your event. Gotta Love It!!!

EC Hispanic Media hasn’t stopped growing since I started 6 years ago, which always means a new challenge for me, the possibility of writing and reporting about almost anything, and also the amplitude of channels to communicate with the reader. But above all, I love the people that make this place so special. I look forward to seeing them every day.

It’s been written that “Few people discover the work they love.” I’m fortunate to do what I love and more importantly to get chance to do it here. People at EC Hispanic Media are passionate about what they do. Everyone is so talented that it’s evident they are here because they truly enjoy what they do not because they lack options. When people discover the work that they love, work becomes more than a job, it becomes your mission.

There are several reasons why I love working here: The culture of the company is very relaxed. Everyone is friendly and approachable. All departments go out of their way to help each other, which makes working in the field a lot easier (especially when a problem needs to be solved or a client has a special request).

Another great reason I look forward to going to work every day is that we have great products to sell to an ever growing segment of the population. There is great demand for our print products, digital solutions and expos in the Hispanic community in Southern California. This makes my efforts worthwhile and relevant. Finally, work at EC Hispanic Media is fun! It’s not just the lunches, the contests, or the celebrations. The people here like their jobs and it shows. There is enthusiasm in the air and everyone has a great attitude. It’s definitely not a TGI Friday attitude.
