The 4A’s Dallas Council presents AdEdge, a new and important event for the Dallas ad industry. AdEdge will provide a unique occasion to influence our industry’s future talent pool in the Dallas area by creating an unprecedented exposure to this market’s agencies and career opportunities. This singularly special event will gather together 200 graduating advertising/marketing/business seniors as they prepare to enter the job market. Not a job fair, the program has been specially designed by Dallas agency working professionals who will be hands-on at the event; speaking, advising and mentoring. Collaborating closely with the universities in the area, this fresh, inventive event is a new, connective way to give graduating and graduate students a giant step forward into their careers.

This full-day program will include a variety of sessions to inform and engage students in the significance of the Dallas ad community and the array of professional options in this market. Activities will include a keynote address from Stan Richards (CEO of The Richards Group) and panel discussions on “A day in the life of a typical ad person” and “What agencies are looking for in a new hire.” Also, there will be breakout sessions with agency practitioners on building a compelling resume, developing an attractive portfolio and understanding the “rules of the road” to work successfully in an agency. Finally, there will be time for networking and socializing between students and industry professionals. In sum, there’s never been a program in this market that will provide a more comprehensive exposure to the Dallas ad industry for students interested in advertising careers. We look forward to seeing you there!
