First meeting for 2017.
Monday, January 23 at 2:00 in Tuttleman 300.
This is not a sit-in-a-desk and learn type of class. DEC is where you use all that you have learned while working directly with clients. It is the ultimate learn by doing experience.
All disciplines are needed each semester. Copywriters, Art Directors, Project and Account Managers, Researchers, Media Planners and more.
Realistically, our clients don’t have much in the way of media budgets. We welcome Media students, but know that your role may need to be expanded. Maybe this is the ultimate challenge for a Media person: make something out of nothing.
3 Steps to Join the DEC Team
1. Meet the basic requirements
Completed all 3000-level track specific courses.
On schedule to graduate the semester you participate in DEC or the following one.
Available Monday afternoons between 2:00 and 5:00.
Eager to work long hours outside of that Monday window.
2. Interview with the Faculty Director
Interviews are held on a walk-in basis between 3:30 and 5:00 each Monday during the DEC session. Go to the DEC offices—Gladfelter Hall 605-609 and ask for Prof. Joe Glennon, Faculty Director of DEC.
Bring samples of your work, a link to your website or portfolio or otherwise come prepared to sell yourself.
3. Complete the Paperwork
If you are hired by DEC, you will be given a Special Projects form and a Registration card after your interview. Both must be completed, signed by the Faculty Director.
Take the signed paperwork to the Department of Advertising Office—300 Annenberg Hall—for processing.
If you do not meet the requirements and still want to inquire about joining DEC, or if it is impossible for you to interview on a Monday Email Faculty Director, Prof. Joe Glennon.
