FutureM, hosted by Massachusetts Innovation and Technology Exchange (MITX), is a series of events from October 23-26, 2012 about the future of marketing and technology. With over 100 speakers and 75 sessions, participating in FutureM is a great way to network with marketing professionals and to expose yourself to the marketing/tech community. FutureM is also a great resource for broadening your contacts in the professional realm.
FutureM’s very own student group has created and planned three FutureM events which call for student participants and are designed to be a ton of fun! (More details at futurem.org/schedule.aspx):
1. Find Your Future is a networking party for the most promising students in Creative, Interactive (PR, social, branding), and Technical to mingle with recruiters from companies and firms, including PayPal, looking for potential hires/interns. The first hour of this party (at Lir on Boylston St.) is for VIP students who prove that they are superstars in these categories to network more exclusively.
To apply to network exclusively with our recruiters visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FindYourFuture.
2. The College Faceoff: Social Media for Social Good is a live competition where teams from different universities are given a marketing goal from a specific non-profit organization. Teams create on-the-spot social media campaigns and the winning team is chosen by three marketing professional judges. The winners receive a cash prize for their non-profit. This event will be MC’ed by Twitter guru Joselin Mane. (Students from last year’s competition got internships as a result of this event!)
