The event will also feature a student pitch competition judged by a panel of industry veterans. New this year is the Creative Showcase Competition, where students can display creative marketing portfolios and gather feedback from marketing professionals.

The Marketing Career Conference will also feature dynamic industry panels and multiple networking sessions with industry leaders who are looking to fill internship and career positions within their organizations.
