My New York Advertising Adventure

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

My trip to New York City has wrapped up and I'm dying to share some photos with you all (in the event you weren't following me on Instagram and Twitter). I went to NYC for four jam-packed days of advertising agency and media visits. It was an unforgettable few days of exploring the city and learning more about the industry for which I am so passionate. Here's a little overview:

Day 1 started off with a visit to Deutsch, Inc. where we talked to a recruiter, creative director, and media planner. Their office was beautiful and the staff was so welcoming. 

After Deutsch, we took a trip to Chelsea Market. This is a must-see when you're in the city!

Our second day started with a visit to The Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones, and the Ad Council. We toured several floors in their building and checked out their newsroom. Very cool!

After our agency visits, my friends and I visited the 9/11 memorial. It was a truly eye-opening and emotional experience. We all reflected upon where were that day and the impact it had on us.

Day 3 started off with an amazing visit to digital agency R/GA. We heard from a couple of their staff members and watched a innovative presentation on their recent case studies. I was blown away!

After R/GA, we took a trip to the MoMA. As an art history minor, this was probably my favorite part of the trip! The Jackson Pollock room is my favorite. 

My last day in New York was dedicated to exploring. I was in the city with five other sorority sisters and we made it our mission to see as much as we could. First was a trip to Central Park and the Christmas market. We also sipped on hot chocolate while watching skaters on the ice rink. After strolling around Central Park, we did a little shopping (and window shopping) on Fifth Avenue and stopped to take a peak at the Rockefeller Christmas tree. 

This was an invaluable experience for my future career in marketing and advertising. I was able to meet from inspirational and hardworking people in this industry that I may not have otherwise. This trip made me even more excited to graduate in June and get my career started!

Follow your dreams!

  1. Ooo, fun! I was in NYC last year right before Christmas and it was SO pretty (although the crowds made me a little claustrophobic! Especially near the Rockefeller Center!)
