GroupM calls on the next generation of media professionals

By AdNews | 1 June 2018

GroupM is calling on the next generation of media professionals for this year's M Grad program.

The Open Days programme is a new way of opening up the business to graduates who might not know what a media agency does.

The network says as each of GroupM's agencies has a different style, the Open Days are the opportunity for applicants to learn about a career in media.

Applicants will meet senior execs, hear from past M Grads about their on-the-job experience and learn from industry experts about the future of media and technology.

The Open Days will be hosted at GroupM’s Sydney campus on 7 June and 21 June in Melbourne. Registrations are open now with a few spots remaining. Registrations can be reached here.

The M Grad programme is designed to give grads a real-world introduction to media fundamentals and includes media theory and practice on the job and in training sessions.

Every year GroupM hires around 20 of the best graduates and offers them a full-time job in one of its  agencies.

“The M Grad programme was a much-needed introductory session into the world of media," MPlatform account executive and M Grad alumni Elizabeth Tsang says.

"University doesn’t always cover everything, so to be taken through the ins and outs of media was really helpful in preparing us for a path into the industry."

Applications are open until 8 August 2018 and the programme starts 1 February 2019.
