There is just one week to go until Melbourne agencies and RMIT advertising students mingle at a Japanese game show themed ‘speed dating’ event in the hopes of landing a professional relationship.
Next Tuesday night, October 8, more than 20 agencies will get to know 70 students at the student organised RMIT Pitch Night.
Confirmed sponsors include RMIT, Grey, Big Red, GPY&R, CHE Proximity, OMD, Mountain Goat, Doculink and Sugar Station. B&T is media partner.
The not-for-profit event, which is 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.
Tickets are on sale until 6pm tomorrow, Wednesday October 2.
The students have created a promo video fitting the Japanese game show theme with the tagline, ‘lets play job or no job’.
The video, featuring a talking cat, invites agencies to “check out the talent while you chow down on sushi and sake”, urging agencies to get their tickets “meow”. Watch the video here.
The evening will be structured into three networking rounds and will be attended by third-year students looking for roles across marcomms including media buying, strategy planning, creative and more.
