Fun Friday Midtown Center for Boys

Fun Friday: Midtown Center for Boys Takes SJG

Recently, we at The San Jose Group were able to introduce both our agency culture and the advertising industry to some special guests. This Fun Friday, let’s hear a bit about the event from one of our Junior Executives, Kristen Schumacker

The San Jose Group welcomed DePaul University and Midtown Center for Boys on Friday, July 18th. The boys, ranging from incoming sophomores to seniors in high school, chose a program focused on communications for the summer. While their original career interests varied from engineer to pro-football player, many of them started to change their minds as they learned more and more about the communications field.

While they were here, we discussed the process marketers go through for every campaign they work on, and why each step is so important. The boys had fun learning more about San Jose Group and all it offers. We were very impressed by what they already knew about marketing and the level of questions they asked. This intelligent group of young men has some bright futures ahead of it!

Check out some of the photos from their visit.

After the presentation, we celebrated with pizza from an iconic Chicago restaurant and of course delicious treats. It was great getting to talk further with the boys one on one and learn a little bit more about their potential career paths. Good luck boys, I know you will be very successful in the future.
