A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the “Meet the Pros” event, presented by NC State’s student chapter of the American Marketing Association.
At this event, which the AMA puts on each semester, students from the business school have the opportunity to listen to a panel of professionals discuss their experiences finding a job, as well as what they are looking for in a prospective intern.
Afterward, there is a mini career fair, where marketing students can meet with recruiters, hand out resumes and hopefully find a job.
I was honored to be asked to sit on the panel this year, which included representatives from companies like Verizon and Lenovo. All the students asked great questions, but ultimately all of the advice can be boiled down to one sentence: “Stand out, work hard and don’t be afraid to try and fail.”
We met with a TON of great candidates for our internship program after the discussion. I’m always glad to see my Alma Mater continue to produce such great marketers!
I strongly recommend this event to all businesses looking for a marketing intern, and to all marketing students at NC State looking for an internship.
