Vermont Cynic biz pioneers give TEDx talk on finding inspiring work
When The Vermont Cynic rebooted its defunct advertising program in 2006, two of the early leaders were students Nat Koloc, who managed the ad department in 2007, and Evan Walden, who assumed Nat’s role in 2008.
Yesterday, both were featured online by TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events designed to create a TED-like experience. (TED, which stands for “Technology, Entertainment and Design,” is a global set of conferences formed to disseminate “ideas worth spreading,” according to TED.com.)
In their talk, the former Cynic ad managers focused on the importance of finding a” purpose-driven workplace” that provides “fulfilling work on a daily basis.” They said they try to help job searchers achieve these goals through their new company Re/Work, which they say is designed to “connect inspired professionals with inspired careers.”
