Marketing Assistants Program
The Marketing Assistants engage in event planning, promotion/social media activities, university-wide recruiting, event planning (major fairs, speaking engagements, representing the department at internal/external events, etc.), hosting corporate partners, and Marketing-specific prospective student and corporate tours. Also, Marketing Assistants take on Teaching Assistant or Research Assistant duties. In addition to participating in meaningful work that benefits both current and prospective Marketing students, Marketing Assistants have the opportunity to participate in networking and professional development opportunities throughout the year.
All Marketing Assistants work 10 hours a week in both face-to-face and remote capacities for a year. To be eligible to become a Marketing Assistant, you must be a current Marketing undergraduate or AMP in Marketing student. You also must be an incoming junior or senior by UA credit hours (i.e. must have at least 60 UA earned hours).
Interested in becoming a Marketing Assistant? Applications for the 2023-2024 team will open up next Spring.
