Publicis Modem — A beautiful San Francisco afternoon, College finals, even Cinco de Mayo did not deter students and young professionals from attending the “Career Development Panel” event put on by Greater San Francisco Ad Club and hosted by Publicis Modem thanks to John Rabasa.
The panelists were JC Curran The Creative Group, Marlies Gammon Y&R, Rory Noguchi BBDO West, Steve Patrizi LinkedIn, and Jon Soto BBDO West. They were great at giving aspiring advertising students and committed young advertising professionals an overview of the advertising job market, opportunities and approaches to making a success of getting into the business and rising once there.
The Q&A session was spirited and candid opinions prevailed. Many of the attendees were able to speak one-on-one with the panelists and other advertising agency professionals in attendance during the reception.
This is just a beginning: this Fall 2010, GSFAC will host a “Job Fair” for students and professionals, TBA.
