Bronco Spotlight: Kaitlyn Watson
Assistant Account Executive at The Mars Agency
I make sure all the departments are in line with the timeline by meeting with teams, making revisions, and ensuring advertisements meet the qualifications of brand and legal.
What is the most rewarding and the most challenging part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is getting an advertisement out the door that I worked on, and seeing it in stores. The most challenging part of my job is learning to manage the multiple tasks and projects happening at once.
What experiences impacted the choice of your career path?
I was heavily involved in the NSAC Case Competition (the Advertising senior capstone). I was the Creative Director and helped out with other aspects of the campaign. I was on Eboard on Adclub. I also was part of a business fraternity, Phi Chi Theta. I think being as involved as possible in your major and having a close connection with professors will always be advantageous.
What advice do you have for students looking for their career after college?
Finding a job after school may take some time, but don’t get discouraged! Use your network and LinkedIn to your advantage. When you go on interviews, be unique and tell them something about yourself that will set you apart from the other candidates.
