Join us next week, Tuesday January 28 at 7:30pm in MLC 214, for a speaker meeting with Derek Cowart. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 2012 and as an advertising major in Grady College, Derek participated in AdClub and worked on campaigns for Athens Food Tours and TBS: Cougar Town. He acquired unique internship experience by creating his own internship for an Athens-based business and through his participation in extracurricular activities during an exchange program in the UK.
Derek has worn several different hats in the ad industry – from account services to media planning. He currently works as a Media Planner for TG Madison on the Troy University account in Atlanta, GA. Derek will be making his way to Athens to discuss the unique work he is doing for higher education clients, how to sell your college experiences to potential employers, and hot topics to follow on the future of digital media. We are extremely excited to have him and hope to see everyone there!
