We're not sure why more agencies don't open their doors of their own accord (aside from REBUS events) to college students looking to get an idea of agency life and career focusing. We're glad that RT does this - let us know if you're agency does something similar and we'll get the word out.
College students home for the Thanksgiving holiday will have a rare opportunity on Tuesday, November 22, when Rodgers Townsend hosts their fifth annual Fall Forum. “We began the event as a way for students to get an inside peek at the agency and learn about the different career paths available in advertising,” said Jennifer Oertli, VP and Director of HR.
This year’s event will feature a lineup of agency speakers including CEO Tim Rodgers, Chief Creative Officer Tom Townsend, and others. Topics covered will include creative, digital, media, account planning, and more.
“We enjoy opening the agency to students, and it’s a great opportunity for them to network,” said Rodgers. Intern Abby Wood adds, “I attended the forum last year and found it really helpful in terms of focusing my career path.”
The event will run from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, November 22. Attendees can learn more and RSVP at the agency’s facebook page.
