Employee Testimonials

"I love working at Destination DC (DDC) because we fundamentally have an inspiring mission to bring people together and encourage them to experience our Nation’s Capital. The purpose behind what we do is what motivates me to do my job. However, our leadership team has created a culture that promotes individual value and a strong community that stays with you the moment you become part of the DDC family. I left the organization to pursue career advancement, but the team continued to cheer me on from a distance, and ultimately lead me to find my way back to this amazing organization. DDC is definitely ingrained in me, and anyone that joins this organization absolutely builds skills and a network to succeed here and wherever their career/future may take them." – John , Sklencar, Convention Sales Manager

Destination DC is a fun place to work with very friendly and supportive coworkers. Besides that, DDC also focuses on helping their employees grow in their professional career. As a graphic designer, I am able to work on a wide range of fun projects that are not just limited to print and digital but also motion graphics. I am excited to grow my career with DDC and I am looking forward to many years ahead."  – Huyen Mac, Graphic Designer
