Created by an Ad/PR major in 2007, the Building Bridges networking event has evolved into an exclusive opportunity for Ad/PR majors to network with industry professional for internships and entry-level jobs in highly competitive marketing communications agencies.
Annually held in the mid-fall in CCNY’s Shepard Hall, Building Bridges hosts 25 advertising and PR agency recruiters who meet with upper class Ad/PR majors for one- on- one interviews. Many students land important internships and jobs as a result.
The event has evolved into an important way for alumni to return to CCNY to meet with current students informally and to network among themselves. Professional organizations such as the New York Black Public Relations Society attend to build relationships with our students for professional opportunities.
