New Orleans | #EDGESCF | #NOLAEDGE
Students from New Orleans area colleges & universities joined Marketing EDGE on Monday morning, October 9th, for a Student Career Forum at the DMA &THEN marketing conference.
Students kicked off their special day attending the DMA’s opening keynote, Michelle Peluso, IBM’s Chief Marketing Officer, who shared important messages such as:
“Once marketing was all art, driven by creativity and instinct and intuition, and now it is art and science, bringing together right-brain and left-brain possibilities for new and improved outcomes."
At the Student Career Forum, Keynote Gayatri Bhalla, VP Digital Media Strategy at Infogroup, and Fireside Chat host and panelists, Jim Fosina, Founder & CEO at Fosina Marketing Group; Brody Clemmer, Director of Innovation at N2Growth; Ali Carlisle, Director of Marketing at The Idea Village; and Brianna Reddeman, Director of Programs at Dress for Success, New Orleans – had some great conversations with the audience, sharing what’s most important when preparing for a marketing career:
- Show your passion, curiosity, and eagerness to learn. Don't be afraid to fail!
- Network, find mentors and stay connected
- Get comfortable with ambiguity and get out of your comfort zone, critical in this rapidly changing industry
- Strengthen your communication, technical, and analytical skills – all musts in marketing
- Take advantage (everyday!) of opportunities to stay well-informed about this industry through classes, daily news feeds, and on and off-campus events
Students then spent the afternoon at the conference – attending a luncheon keynote, various sessions, and visiting the Experience Zone with more than 75 companies exhibiting.
“I had never heard about the Student Career Forum until my professor recommended I attend. Looking back at it now, it was a life changing experience. Not only was I contacted by Marketing EDGE to join their team but I was also introduced to my current internship at Epsilon. The Student Career Forum facilitated and guided me throughout my career journey.”
Lizbielka Rosario, Mercy College, Marketing
"Marketing EDGE has really opened my eyes of the vast and diverse marketing field as compared to other business majors. I am truly honored and grateful to be able to attend to Marketing EDGE events and get to sponsor them to my colleagues.”
Thuriya Sai, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Marketing & Management Information Systems
“Before taking part in Marketing EDGE programs, marketing was a vague, somewhat confusing term to me. After attending Marketing EDGE programs such as Student Career Forums and the Collegiate Summit, the industry made a lot more sense to me. I learned first-hand from marketing leaders.”
Rachel Trenchard, Vassar College, Psychology and Economics
“Very beneficial information about how to go beyond your resume and stand out from people that have done it.”
Melissa Roberts, Drake University, Marketing and Accounting, minor in Mathematics
