Rural Digital Partnership Program

The BCom Rural Digital Partnership hiring initiative is designed to match our digital expertise with a passionate, tech-savvy local who wants to bridge the digital divide in their community.

BCom’s national success is built on the success of our early years in the small-town USA community of Auburn, Nebraska. Nationally, we’ve grown in new spaces without forgetting our roots in rural America.

As we continue to do so, we know that our digital expertise and love for rural America is unlike any other digital marketing agency in the country. Much of this is based on relationships that we’ve built with our rural customers. And, we know that there’s no better digital advocate for a community than someone who is local.

In 2019 and early 2020, we will launch a bold new initiative to hire digital marketing specialists in key rural communities across the country that fit our values and passion for rural America.

Objectives

Rural communities across America still face a significant digital divide. From schools to businesses, many rural organizations are being left behind.

Here's what we're going to do:

Provide key rural communities nationwide with the digital marketing services and resources that BCom has mastered in our decade of existence.

Establish or stabilize tech-focused, remote jobs in rural communities by hiring at least one digital marketing specialist in each selected community to manage relationships and provide ground-level digital marketing strategy and support

Expand talent pipelines for digital marketing / tech careers in rural communities across the country through full-time and internship programs in rural America
