In September 2012, ECS Carolinas, LLP (ECS) was chosen as the “firm of the month” for NCSU’s Engineering Department.  This gave us a rare opportunity to create and place recruitment posters throughout the College of Engineering building.  Our objective was to attract young talent (recruitment), increase ECS awareness, and to differentiate ourselves from other consulting engineering firms.

We chose to create a four poster series and each design focused on a different key element highlighting areas of ECS that would interest college students.  These posters increased student awareness of ECS and showcased us as an interesting firm with many options for career paths, locations, and opportunities.

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) recognized ECS with an award for our marketing communications campaign designed for Recruitment and Retention at North Carolina State University’s College of Engineering.  The SMPS National Marketing Communications Awards (MCA) annual competition is the longest-standing, most prestigious awards program recognizing excellence in marketing and communications by professional services firms in the design and building industry.
