Careers in Advertising & Communications: Where The Jobs Are! And the exclamation point is there for a reason. To proclaim that, at long last, there are signs that the outlook for jobs in advertising and communication are improving. Lots of different types of jobs in a wide range of companies are out there for students majoring in advertising, communications, marketing, and related disciplines, and these events will help you find them.
The event features a panel of advertising and communication professionals—drawn from ad agencies, media buying firms, PR firms, and media companies—discussing the questions that are top-of-mind for students, such as:
- Creative? Media planning? Account management? Sales? Digital? Public relations and promotions? Event management? What type of job is right for me?
- How do I get an internship? How do I land that first full-time job?
- What can I do to make myself a more desirable candidate to potential employers?
- What’s the best place to work? Ad agency vs. media company? Agency or in-house? Big vs. small agency? Philly vs. New York City?
And the panelists will stay around after the formal discussion to network with you and answer your questions one-on-one.
All area college students are welcome to attend. Registration will open the week of March 22; we’ll contact you via email to let you know.
