Few professions rely so much on a constant influx of fresh ideas and young talent as advertising. The American Advertising Federation Pittsburgh is committed to attracting the brightest young stars to our area and nurturing the future marketing professionals now in school.

The leap from campus to workforce comes quickly. To make that transition smooth and rewarding, students are encouraged to get involved early and often in seminars, student competitions, and events, as well as apply for various internship and scholarship opportunities. Working alongside ad professionals exposes you to real-world situations and gives you the kind of hands-on experience you can’t get in a classroom. Our speaker series provide you invaluable insights into what’s next in the ever-changing marketing landscape.
