Career Forums

You are already juggling school, work, club activities, and life in general, so why attend our Student Career Forums? 

Because our Forums have helped to connect more than 100,000 students to companies who live and breathe marketing every day, the same companies who are looking for interns and entry level hires.  Students in attendance also are eligible to apply for Marketing EDGE scholarships.  Spend the time, it’s worth it.

Washington, DC Forum

Students joined Marketing EDGE for a fun afternoon hearing from marketing professionals about their careers and companies, gaining valuable career advice, and networking with companies ranging from media to nonprofits.

"I really enjoyed the forum.  It was a great opportunity to network with people in the industry.  I also thought there was a good and diverse selection of companies who attended.  There was something for everyone, whether you are interested in advertising, social media marketing, digital marketing, sales, PR, or data and analytics.  I only wish I would have found out about Marketing EDGE sooner."
