Agencies invited to play 'job or no job' with RMIT

RMIT advertising students have set out to woo Melbourne’s agencies with a ‘speed dating’ networking event next month called RMIT Pitch Night.

The not-for-profit event, now in its second year, is organised by the school’s third-year advertising students and aims to connect soon-to-be grads with prospective employers.

Seventy students will attend this year’s event which is Japanese Game Show themed with the tagline ‘Let’s play job or no job’.

Last year’s event was attended by 150 people, including roughly 25 agencies.

This year, organisers are aiming for 35 agencies with GPY&R, CHE, Grey and Universal McCann already on the guest list.

RMIT Pitch Night coordinator, James Gerrard, told B&T the students “have studied all areas of the industry, and have found their niche they want to work in – media buying, strategy planning, creative and account service”.

“Who we want to attend range from managing directors, general managers, creative directors, executive planners, hell even CEO’s if they want to meet the talented bunch.”

The evening will be structured into three networking rounds including a 15 minute speed dating session, where future creatives can show off their portfolios, and will conclude with drinks and food.

RMIT Pitch Night 2013 will be held at RMIT’s Storey Hall on October 8 at 6.30 pm. Agencies can purchase tickets for $140 which provides entry for four people, food and drink as well as a copy of the yearbook which profiles all the 2013 graduating students.
