Ever wonder what life’s like as a young professional in the marketing and advertising world? Well, we happen to know a thing or two about that.
Our AAF Buffalo board members are coming to UB to give you the lowdown on what’s coming after graduation. From PR and social media strategies to web and art design, our pros will answer whatever questions you have (yes, you might still eat Ramen Noodles for dinner – even after that first big kid paycheck) and give you some pointers on how to prepare for the ‘real world.’
