Earlier this week, De Montfort University invited us down to give a talk to their final year marketing students. They asked us to give them an inside look at agency life and offer some guidance to help with their employability after graduating.
Ian put together a 40 minute presentation covering what it’s like to work in an agency, including the various roles and what each of them entail. Most importantly, he offered advice on how to get a job at an agency and how to make yourself stand out. He also spoke to the students about RKH, our history, who we are, what we do and what makes us successful.
After the presentation, Ian finished things off with a Q&A. The students were full of questions, asking for advice on how best to prepare for interviews, how to sell their skills and what to include in a CV and covering letter, plus lots more.
We’re always happy to get involved with our local universities and schools, and it was a pleasure to speak to the marketing students. We wish them all the best in their future careers!
