Mentorship Program: The Digital Front
As we dive deeper into the digital era, the advertising landscape is constantly changing through dynamic technologies, meaning that brands can connect to consumers like never before. Your professors and coworkers throw around words like SEO and big data all the time, but how do advertisers use these techniques?
If you’re curious about what a career in digital entails and how you can land one of these jobs, or if you’re exploring various careers in advertising, this event is for you. Join Ad 2 to learn from digital gurus ready to answer any and all questions you may have in a casual group setting.
In a speed networking format, you’ll be able to choose the digital professionals you want to chat with throughout the evening. You’ll be able to sit with a group of your peers to learn from multiple mentors of your choosing during rounds of speed networking. You’ll leave with new advice, ideas, and connections that will help you continue your own career journey.
These professionals are knowledgeable, experienced, and committed to supporting the professional development of “mentees”. They will be eager to share their journeys with you!
