"Last year at Meet the Pros I got an inside look at what the real world advertising and marketing industry is like," said Justin Noethe, senior marketing major at UNI. "I also had a chance to network with area professionals and gain insight from their personal experiences."

"This is a unique event in that it allows students to interact face-to-face with professionals in their field," said Mike Tyer, Creative Director, Creative Cohesive & Code. "Students are able to ask targeted questions and make valuable connections that can sometimes lead to future internship or job connections."

"I attended Meet the Pros this past spring and found it to be helpful in starting my career search," said Trisha Vandenberg, recent University of Northern Iowa marketing graduate. "The panel shared specifics on day-to-day operations within the marketing and advertising industry. With their various areas of expertise, the panelists covered a wide variety of marketing related topics."
