Cue the popular carbonated beverage jokes as we give a big (and bubbly) welcome to Emily Seltzer, who joins the [ 2 one 5 ] Creative team for the fall as our latest Marketing Intern.
Emily fell in love with storytelling at a young age, reading Roald Dahl books instead of paying attention to teachers in elementary school, and lining the shelves in her bedroom with suspenseful thrillers. She joins us after receiving her MBA in Marketing + Communications from Stockton University in South Jersey and kicking off a freelance career catering to local businesses. Emily’s past clients include an ad agency rooted in Atlantic City, for which she wrote copy, and High Street Hospitality Group based in Old City – Emily spearheaded the group’s digital media marketing efforts.
After relocating to Philadelphia, Emily began her transition from freelance work to full time at Fork restaurant. She did it all, from developing social media content and overseeing email marketing to creating seasonal cocktails for the farm-to-fork restaurant’s constantly changing menu. Her proudest accomplishment at Fork? Bringing to life the restaurant’s new “Farm to Fork” blog, featuring in-depth interviews with the farms and purveyors supplying Fork’s produce. The blog focused on the rapidly growing farm-to-table movement in Philadelphia, and what Fork’s partners valued about their relationship with the brand.
“When we began evaluating intern resumes for the fall term, Emily really stood out as a candidate,” said Emily Huddell, VP of Brand Development at [ 2 one 5 ] Creative. “We loved her copywriting background, but more than that, we really gravitated towards her ability to be a self-starter with a history of creating her own opportunities. She’s going to be a great fit.”
“I’m looking forward to being a part of this team of creative minds,” said Emily, “I’m humbled to be given the opportunity to learn from the incredibly talented people in this industry.”
Want a few fun facts about Emily? We’ve got a few, including that she collects tattoos every time she goes to a new city/ country (none are done by the same artist, except for one artist in Old City), speaks fluent Cantonese, and has actually been taking a ceramics class a few blocks away from [ 2 one 5 ]. Also, as a born and raised Atlantic City kid, it’s no surprise that Emily’s favorite artist (and first crush) is The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen.
Welcome, Emily, to the [ 2 one 5 ] Creative squad!
