    By Thais Miller

    Before joining the Rights and Media team at Jones & Bartlett Learning, I worked as an admissions counselor for three years. Though I was definitely ready to say goodbye to making 100 phone calls per week, assuring parents that their child would definitely get an internship, and having conversations about financial aid which were far above my pay grade, I have missed the facetime with one’s customer that comes with a sales position. Thus, when presented with the opportunity to represent Jones & Bartlett Learning along with Matt Kane, Director of Product Management and Lindsay White, Marketing Manager at the NSTA 2018 National Conference on Science Education in Atlanta, I was thrilled to dust off the old college fair skills and learn about marketing the text books I work on behind the scenes.
