Congratulations to Megan Hartwick, Winner of the New York Job Project!

A big congratulations to Megan Hartwick, this year’s New York Job Project winner!

Megan’s journey to become the winner began after she secured a spot as one of the contest’s top six entries with the most votes. From there, Megan was selected as one of three finalists who came to New York City after dazzling our judges during the semi-final interviews. Megan’s professionalism and positive attitude proved to us she’ll be a great fit with our team here at Affect.

Affect would like to thank everyone who entered, voted for their favorite entries and supported The New York Job Project. In addition, a huge thank you to our judges for their work in helping select our winner!

Megan will start her job with Affect soon, and we can’t wait to have her on board!
