A local foundation is helping students and young professionals break into the field of advertising.
At its monthly "Turning Point" events, The Eisner Creative Foundation helps students connect with each other and professionals, all while getting a first-person view of the industry.
Students tour real-world creative firms like advertising agencies or production houses, meet with people working in the field, and hone those all-important networking skills. And every month, students tour a different agency so they're always getting a fresh view.
March's "Turning Point" took place at Bader Rutter, a Brookfield advertising Agency. Click the podcast player to listen in on the session and hear our interview with the foundation's Chairman Bill Eisner.
