~~ 5 Reasons Why You Should Get Up Early to Hear Belle Frank ~~

> You’re not scheduled to work, there’s nothing on your calendar that early in the morning and you understand those who are “up and out early” receive untold rewards;

> You can’t miss an opportunity for an intimate “sit-down” with a leading ad agency exec who is giving her time and talent to provide tips to help you land a coveted internship or first job;

> Communications majors from other cities pay hundreds of dollars to meet professionals like Ms. Frank at industry events, while you’re privileged to meet her for $2 – a mere Metrocard swipe;

> Professional development (PD) is part of your job as an MCA student, and will continue to be throughout your career (no … learning doesn’t stop after graduation);

> It’s an opportunity to network, grow, learn and succeed in the dynamic, yet competitive ad/pr industry.

Thanks! We look forward to CONFIRMING your attendance.

Professors Tag and Scott Jackson
