Ten Crazy Questions Life at Dept

Curious about the people who work at Dept and make all the amazing work you see of us? We thought so. In this new blog format we’re introducing our employees one by one by not asking the regular questions, but different ones. Want to know who once put 250 of our business contacts in cc instead of bcc in an email, who desperately wants to see the Clueless trend make a comeback in fashion and who really feels a bond with peanut butter? You’re about to find out.

Hi Mustafa! How did you end up at Dept and what do you do here all day?

A good friend of mine introduced me to Tobias and he introduced me to the recruitment department. Within two days we arranged an introduction talk and within two weeks Dept and I decided to work together. On a daily base I’m writing strategies (digital marketing/media) for several clients. Strategy means developing different routes to achieve marketing and/or business goals for clients.
