Junior seeking alums to explore fields of digital marketing/art for social change

This is Nicole Zamora, a junior majoring in business and psychology and minoring in creativity, the arts and social transformation. So far, I have identified a deep interest in digital marketing, personal development/advancement, and using art as a vehicle for social change. As I plan for an internship next summer, I would like to connect with people who are in either of those fields to learn more about their experience. I will use these insights to clarify what career path I will further explore this summer and to find out if there is an overlap between any of my interests.

Additionally, feel free to share any internship or career-related opportunities that could help narrow my focus.

Thank you in advance for reading this!

Business/art history/philosophy senior with background in analytics seeking creative career in brand management

I’m a senior majoring in business with minors in art history and philosophy. I am seeking career opportunities in brand management (particularly in the CPG/F&B industries) but have found it to be quite difficult to break into the field. Any advice about how to break into the industry? My previous experiences have been focused on analytics and consulting ranging from startups to Fortune 100 companies, which is why my resume is getting picked up for much more quantitative than creative roles.

Archived Ad: Senior Focused on Global Communication Seeks Advice

I’m currently senior studying Cultural Anthropology and International and Global Studies (IGS) with a focus in social media/global communication. I spent a semester abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, studying international advertising and cross-cultural communication, and am looking to pursue a career within the advertising/marketing industry. I have background experience in account management, public relations, and nonprofit marketing, and most recently have been interning (for two semesters now) on the digital strategy team at Hill Holliday. I’m graduating in May and looking to pursue strategy/planning opportunities as well as account management roles. Do any alums have advice for me in terms of the best way to get my foot in the door? I’d be interested in connecting with alums within the industry—I’d like to learn about various agencies/specific roles, as well as any potential entry-level opportunities. Thank you!


Archived Ad: Experienced Grad Seeking Jobs at Boston/NYC Ad Agencies

A 2014 graduating senior seeking full time opportunities in Boston or New York. I am particularly interested in pursuing careers in either the account management, content, or strategy departments at full-fledged advertising agencies. I have recently wrapped up an account management internship at Hill Holliday, having worked on the Liberty Mutual account for the 2014 Winter Olympics, and the Novartis account with their upcoming drug campaign launch. During my internship, I’ve had opportunities to learn about each department within the agency and build a network of contacts. Additionally, I have also been part of the IPG Summer Intern program as a marketing intern for IW Group, Inc. last summer. I would love to speak with anyone who has advice on what next steps I should take to be able to enter into the ad agency world full-time, and any tips or strategies on standing out as the best candidate to employers.
