I hope as Philadelphia Advertising students you are all taking advantage of their student events! I have gone to a few throughout my undergraduate career and I have always walked away learning great ideas to apply to my studies and career pursuit. First off, I encourage you to become a Philly Ad Club member! As a Temple University advertising student you are offered a discounted rate of $10 for a year membership. That’s a steal for all the great opportunities and resources they lay out for you.
On February 13th at LaSalle University, you should try out one of their free events if you want to see what Philly Ad Club is all about. Step Up to the Job Genius bar is an interactive event that is a play on Apple’s Genius Bar but in this setting you will step up to 6 “Job Geniuses” that will give you tips and tricks on how to search out and land the right jobs. You will learn networking, portfolio tips, and where to find jobs from Razorfish Health, O3 World, Philadelphia Business Journal, and Greater Media Philadelphia. Make sure to register here. It’s free! Why not grab a friend and go?
