Job placement

Brandcenter grads work at top agencies, brands, and tech companies

Salary survey

Take a look at our alumni salary survey, done every few years to capture graduates' average starting salaries.

 

Brandcenter graduates are ready to hit the ground running and move up quickly.

We provide career guidance to our students every step of the way. Opportunities include taking classes such as Professional Possibilities, participating in interview workshops and networking with recruiters from top agencies who visit the Brandcenter to meet our talent.

As graduation approaches, we host a two-day recruiter session to give graduating students the chance to meet over 250 agency and company recruiters. It’s a reverse career fair: You set up a table to display your work and personality, and the recruiters come to you.

Alumni network

Once you graduate, we keep you in the loop with jobs postings and resources throughout your career.

Our alumni also provide a network for life, keeping up with each other’s careers. And they love to recruit from the Brandcenter (since they know what it takes, after all).
