Student’s from Langley Academy School join us to get an insight into the media industry
On 15 November we participated in the IPA’s Advertising Unlocked Open Day to showcase a career in media and advertising to the next generation of talent.
It is the largest industry-wide “Open Day” in the UK and a fantastic initiative from the IPA that we are delighted to be a part of. Advertising Unlocked introduces new, potentially unconsidered career options to school and college students, and provides agencies like MI with an audience of diverse talent.
We had the privilege of The Langley Academy school/college based in Langley, Slough joining us for the day, at our offices in Southwark.
We had a full schedule planned for the 12 students, including a deep dive into offline and online media channels, working on a demanding media brief and getting the opportunity to ask questions about the industry and career paths in a Q&A.
It was a brilliant day hosting the students, witnessing their drive and enthusiasm. We had a total of seven presenters from MI leading discussions across all parts of the business. We hope the students were inspired and we could contribute to their knowledge in the media industry and maybe we will see some of them in the future!
“Thanks so much for today, it was great and we very much enjoyed our time with your friendly, welcoming team! The students were very interested and learnt a lot about advertising and marketing; they enjoyed the tasks and engaging with the team and took on board the practical and useful careers advice. We would highly recommend this experience to others!”
