Information Session


209 East 23rd Street , Room 502 5th floor

Open to the public

Moderator: John Rea

Executive creative director, Havas Worldwide

So what's a career in advertising like? We'll answer that question, and the next two: What are the courses like, and how can they help me get a job in the creative department of an ad agency? This lecture will have several members of the advertising faculty (current creatives) on hand, expressing their passion for creating ads and explaining how their courses work. We will discuss the roles of art directors, copywriters and creative directors. There will be time for questions and answers, and a short portfolio review at the end of the program. You'll leave inspired to create great advertising... or at the very least, knowing if this is a career you want to pursue.
