Where are you working now, what is your role and how did you get here?

Taru Bhargava:

I'm currently working at Foundation Marketing Inc. Foundation is a B2B content marketing agency based out f Halifax, Canada. My role at Foundation is multi-dimensional and on a day to basis, I get to handle external clients as well as internal brands.
How I got here is pretty interesting. But long story short, I've known Ross Simmonds for a while and have always admired his work. So when he shared that he had a spot open at Foundation, I was quick to jump and leverage on the opportunity.

Why do you love marketing?

Taru Bhargava:

What I love about my job is the ability to tell engaging stories, have a peek into the inside of so many businesses, identify the pain points of customers and then weave them into content that drives traffic and generates revenue.
The best part? No two days are the same and there’s something new waiting for me every day. I can wake up and write blogs, create copy for landing pages or work on my side gig as the sun sets.
