On Jan. 11 and 12, HWS students will be heading to Manhattan for the Colleges’ annual “Fashion Day in NYC” and “Media, Advertizing and PR Day in NYC.”
In past years, students who have participated in this networking trip have had the opportunity to meet with representatives from Ralph Lauren, Benetton, Clinique, The Gap, Liz Claiborne, Tommy Hilfiger and others. Students have also been given invaluable advice and tips on breaking into the competitive world of fashion, media, advertising and public relations, including resume and interview advice.
Students are urged to attend and meet alums and employers who have had success in these lines of work. The trips are great opportunities to take a glimpse into these fields from several angles as well it will make for a fun and rewarding experience.
Due to limited space, interested students must fill out an application by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7. Applications should be submitted to the Salisbury Center for Career Services and Professional Development in Trinity Hall.
