Hi - great post! I am interested to know if a degree and experience in marketing is applicable to this role if the candidate has a background in graphic design and creative work?
This position seems very interesting to me though I'd enjoy learning more about the current marketing tools/platforms Wegmans currently in this role. Would there be an opportunity to innovate the digital marketing footprint? Also is there an option to work anywhere else besides Rochester,NY
