It’s been a busy spring and summer here at NAS headquarters. We were honored to take the time to participate in two very special events:

NAS joins LifeAct’s Into the Light Walk

On a recent Sunday, the NAS team got together to “shine the light” on an important cause by participating in LifeAct’s 15th annual Into the Light Walk. It was a truly inspirational experience to share personal, heartfelt moments with strangers all around us who all participated in the walk for the same reasons: knowing a loved one who lost their battle with depression, getting the conversation started to encourage those struggling to get help, and showing support in the march towards lowering the statistics of young people losing their lives to depression and suicide.

Held at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, the event raised almost $100,000 overall and NAS placed in the Top 5 teams who donated, contributing $2,304.50. We’d like to thank LifeAct for allowing us to share in its extraordinary mission.

Help to fight childhood cancer, one cup at a time

Friday, July 12 was a gorgeous summer day in Cleveland. Given our success in last year’s fundraiser to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, we were “all hands on deck” at NAS corporate headquarters this year. Many kind, generous people stopped by to enjoy a glass of lemonade and change a life for a child facing hardship. 100% of contributions are donated to the Foundation to support research in finding better treatments and cures for childhood cancer.

Our goal was set at $1,000: NAS raised $578 at our lemonade stand and another $475 through online donations. With NAS matching $1,000, we were able to contribute $2,053.

Lessons from TA tech: Embracing the Programmatic Future

Topics: programmatic advertising

Posted by NAS on Jun 12, 2019 10:25:28 AM


Courtney Compton, NAS MediaPro Strategist and Erin Duffy, NAS Account Director attended last week’s TAtech Leadership Summit in Boston. Sponsored by Appcast, the TAtech Leadership Summit is the only conference focused solely on the application of programmatic technology in recruitment advertising. Here are Courtney’s and Erin’s insights from the Summit.

Initial Impressions

Courtney: This was my first time at TAtech’s Leadership Summit on Programmatic Ad Buying. I found the summit to be a great learning experience. The welcome reception at Fenway Park was a really fun time. It provided an opportunity to meet people I have only spoken with via phone or email. Throughout the summit, I had the opportunity to network with colleagues in the recruitment media industry.

Erin: It was also my first time at TAtech. Seeing some of the vendors you talk with over email or on the phone every day/week was a great experience. All came forward with promise of advancements in their own platforms or intentions of looking to improve their relationships with us for a better experience for our clients. Programmatic is still new to the industry and it was encouraging to see it evolving from all sides (ATS, programmatic vendors, media and other agencies).

NAS gives back at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank

Topics: giving back

The NAS team in Cleveland was proud to recently spend a few hours working at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in Northeast Ohio having provided more than 57 million meals in 2018 to hungry people in Cuyahoga, Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Ashland and Richland counties.

 A number of our employees worked in Sorting, helping to verify, sort and place items in the required bins. We worked alongside a number of regular volunteers and received excellent training and support from the staff at the Food Bank. We’d like to thank them for letting us share in their extraordinary work!

Q&A with our Programmatic Power Players

Topics: programmatic advertising

Posted by NAS on Feb 7, 2019 9:00:00 AM


Programmatic advertising has been one of the most talked-about areas of recruitment marketing in the past year. Our NAS MediaPro offering has been adopted by a large number of our clients, with great success, which gives us a lot of insight into the process, the progress and the performance of programmatic.

Jennifer Henley (Vice President of Client Services) and Chris Knott (Account Director) recently spoke with AppCast about some of the rewards and challenges of programmatic advertising as part of an e-book they are preparing. We decided to share some of the wide-ranging conversation on NAS Talent Talk.

How would you describe programmatic advertising to recruitment professionals?

Chris Knott: When I discuss programmatic with clients, the word that comes to mind is evolution. To me, it’s the evolution of the PPC media strategy to a programmatic media strategy. It’s the best way to manage an active candidate strategy, it’s what’s NOW and it will only continue to evolve.

Jennifer Henley: When I think of programmatic I think: simple and effective. Those are two keywords that come to mind for me. I know there’s a lot happening in the background and it’s technology-driven, but when I think about what it will do for you – it will simplify your process, and you will be more effective – the benefits are obvious and transparent.
