As a part of the advertising program at Mohawk we have an amazing opportunity to meet with industry professionals, often in their workplace. Students are matched up and then told to interview their partner, document the entire trip, and write up a report. I met with Ryan Chiasson, currently a Copywriter at Anomaly, Toronto.
It was awesome.
I found out a lot about the industry and how it works. The work environment is completely different than anything I have experienced before. I was lucky to drop in on a food photo shoot for a client, which was particularly interesting for me. They had a shelf of awards, which I have learned are almost a currency in the ad world. Hopefully I win some student awards!
