Penn State Scholar Alumni Derek Gerberich and Samantha Mayhew will be joining us from Metric Theory -- a leading digital marketing firm with offices in San Francisco, Denver, New York City, Salt Lake City, and Orange County. They will host a session that introduces what a career in digital marketing looks like, and is open to all majors, all years (freshman through senior).

In addition, Metric Theory is hiring for multiple full-time positions with the positions starting after winter and spring graduation. Students interested in full-time positions should send their resumes to Derek and Samantha in advance of, or at, the career session. Interviews with selected applicants to be scheduled for Wednesday, the 11th and Thursday, the 12th.

Derek Gerberich, Associate Director, Account Services

Derek is a five-year veteran of the digital advertising industry, and currently oversees a team of digital marketers responsible for managing over $20 MM in annualized ad spend, which is the largest operating team in Metric Theory’s Denver office.

He graduated from Penn State with a Master’s Degree in applied statistics, and was involved with cross country, as well as the men’s basketball team while in school. Favorite creamery flavor? Peachy Paterno.

Samantha Mayhew, Account Manager, Account Services

Samantha is a recent Penn State grad, enjoying her first year of work in Metric Theory’s Denver office. She brings fresh perspective on the job-search process (having recently gone through it herself!) as well as a unique perspective on how a psychology major can end up in digital advertising.

Schreyer Scholar Marissa Works

I chose Schreyer because it is one of the top-rated honors programs in the country. I knew it would make a large community such as Penn State feel smaller, and more intimate.
