Nina Hale is thrilled to announce the newest member to our team! Meet Angela Needham, our Search Intern. With some real-world SEO experience and an enthusiastic attitude, she’ll be a search guru in no time. Learn more about Angela in her own words: What is your educational background? I graduated this past May from Augsburg College. I majored in Marketing and minored in International Business. What lead you to search Marketing? My dad has his own hardwood flooring company which was hit hard by the recession. To generate some business for him, I created a website for his company. We used AdWords for a few months while we worked on improving our ranking in the organic results. Our focus now is on SEO, which I love since it allows me to be both creative and strategic when optimizing his site. What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving? Bragging that my ancestors came from the Mayflower. I haven’t looked at the lineage recently but William Brewster, the preacher of the ship, is my great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather (that is a rough estimate on the “greats”). Biggest Facebook snafu to date? Say what you will, I am a huge Britney Spears fan. When I went to her concert this summer, I changed my profile picture to a picture of Brit a week before the concert. The following week, I had an interview at a brand consulting firm. They asked me what I thought my Facebook profile picture said about me. When I realized they saw it when it was a picture of Britney, I didn’t know what to say. But everything happens for a reason because if it wasn’t Britney and if I got the job, I wouldn’t be sitting here at Nina Hale today. Welcome to the NHI team, Angela!
