“Taking part in the Agency Open House Day is a great way to experience our industry in a genuine, hands-on way. Few companies offer potential recruits the chance to immerse themselves in their day-to-day work before the hiring process even begins. This a unique opportunity for students to build their network and improve their career perspectives. It’s also an event where agencies can benefit from being in contact with different points of view and gain experience from interacting with students,” said Dominique Villeneuve, CEO of the A2C.

 

Students will join the agency they are paired with for a three-hour session, during which they can gain a better understanding of the industry and get to know the team they could be working with. They’ll be able to see how professionals from various departments work on a mandate, take part in presentations of case studies and/or campaigns, participate in simulations, take advantage of mentorship sessions, obtain advice on how to stand out in the industry, and much more!

 

Available again this year : The first 100 people to sign up for the Agency Open House Day will gain exclusive access to a virtual conference from Grenier aux nouvelles titled, “Se préparer et se démarquer lors de son entrée en agence : trucs et astuces de recruteurs”. The webinar will take place on Monday, February 7th, 2022 at noon.

Student grants

To encourage students to pursue their studies and support them in their academic journey, part of the registration fee will be used to create grants which will be awarded via a random draw to participants who have filled out the post-event survey. Students will also get a chance to win a Grenier aux nouvelles kit which includes a training workshop and a subscription to Grenier Magazine.
