"It wasn't just one aspect of my time at IC that got me to where I am today: It was the curriculum, which allowed me to take a diverse course load, helping me to develop a strong portfolio to present at interviews. It was the professors, who pushed me to think through innovation, strategy and creativity. It was the students, who taught me that one of the best ways to learn is from each other. In addition to these elements, the additional opportunities through the IMC program taught me leadership, networking and teamwork. Two of my most favorable experiences involved the AWNY Career Conference and Ad Lab, two opportunities that agencies love to hear about! Having multiple job offers upon graduation proved that this program helped to develop me into a strong and competitive candidate and I wouldn't be where I am today without its support."
