This year, we’ve been working collectively as an agency to make transformative impact on our community through our work. But sometimes, we take that mission a step further. The month of May came with many opportunities for us to make transformative impact on more personal levels.
For starters, Zach took a day to inspire young minds at Delta High School. Speaking with the school’s yearbook classes, Zach provided the next generation of professionals with insight on working as a graphic designer and on working within the advertising industry. The students were notably engaged and asked him lots of questions, which is a sign that he sparked aspirations in them.
In a similar vein, May marked the start of our summer internship program. We welcomed three great interns to our office, and they quickly hit the ground running with #AgencyLife. Aside from being a tremendous help, having interns gives us the chance to give job-seeking college students a taste of the advertising world and valuable “real-world” work experience. This summer, we implemented a new aspect of the internship through Muncie INtern Collaborative. With this partnership, our interns are able to expand their professional networks, learn more about living and working in Muncie, and further prepare themselves for their job hunts.
Additionally, we hosted local artists in a film photography show during the Brink of Summer ArtsWalk, and we began coordinating our first-ever externship with a professor from Ball State university, who will share her insight on the industry to help better prepare students for working in a professional setting. May was a busy month of community involvement, but proof that we really are making transformative impact on our community.
