mkg is not looking for extraordinary people

In a way, it kind of sounds like you’re extra good at being ordinary. Think about it.
It’s almost another version of “very normal.”

For us at MKG, we’re looking for people who are, well, extra-non-ordinary. You stand out. You’re driven. You like to be challenged, to grow, and you do it all with a little something—shall we say—extra!

Aside from all the great work, cool clients, and a fully-immersed “Grey” culture, MKG comes down to people that excel at what they do, because they love what they do, and they have fun doing it, and it shows. So the question is, before you continue, is how extra-non-ordinary are you?
