|AdPR Alum Lauren Zarzour with students|
AdPR's Network@Night hosted a great alumni dinner February 20th. Lauren Zarzour, Senior Digital Strategist at Vert, joined six AdPR students for dinner to discuss everything from her time at UGA to the steps she took to attain her current position. Conversation revolved around the activities of social media agencies, the importance of internships, resume tips, and building relationships with clients.
Network@Nights are intimate gatherings of alumni and graduating seniors. They were created to alumni and students to freely exchange questions and advice about life after Grady. There is an event each month throughout the school year.
Zarzour was honored to be the AdPR special guest for Network@Night so she can help our students in the advertising and public relations field.
"Only 5 years out of UGA, I've grown a lot - my career path has taken me through ad sales, in-store marketing for a local grocery chain, and now to my current role at Vert. I learned so much at Grady but have learned just as much since, and being able to pass that along to current students through the dinner series was a fantastic opportunity I couldn't pass up."
The next Network@Night will be held in late March.
