Swift Career Day
February 22, 2017 @ 9:15 am - 12:00 pm
Check in at 9:15 am. Program starts promptly at 9:30 am and ends at noon. Open to students from our partner Portland high schools.
Spend the morning with Swift, one of Portland’s fastest growing creative advertising agencies. Students will tour the office, including the content studio where photos and videos are staged and shot. They will talk with creative professionals such as art directors, writers, strategists, stylists, photographers, designers and account executives about their jobs and career paths. After learning about the creative process, students will break into small groups with Swift employees to work on pitches for clients. They will also hear from the hiring team about personal branding and what agencies like Swift look for in applicants. Swift’s client roster includes Starbucks, Google, adidas, Nestlé and Pandora.
Here’s what Swift says: “Swift is a strategic creative agency that lives and breathes digital, leading brands forward with a groundbreaking combination of insights and ideas. We are hyper-focused on delivering campaigns that get results.”
Registration will close on Friday, Feb. 17. Ask your career coordinator or counselor for more information.
