Get in on The Hunt with Comas and Dukkers

Greetings DMIers. This Thursday we’ll have the first our of entrepreneur guest speakers. Our guests, Brittany Comas and Ally Dukkers, graduated from the Chico State J&PR program with the news option and are currently running various social media platforms for The Hunt.

The Hunt is a fashion startup located in San Francisco. The company’s about page explains that it “is a community powered mobile app that is transforming the way that people shop online. By empowering peers to suggest products for each other, The Hunt taps into the personal shopper inside all of us and creates a positive community centered on fashion and individual style.”

Brittany and Ally are going to discuss:

  • Career path: how they moved from reporters at The Orion to social media goddesses in San Francisco.
  • Their jobs at The Hunt
  • What it’s like working for a technology startup
  • How your journalism skill sets translate well to startup companies
  • Recommendations for landing jobs in the tech space

I’m sure our guests can give you a wealth of ideas for your digital media product concepts. Do your research and bring lots of questions.

Best,

@DebraJChico
