What is Advertising?

A new podcast for students where we make sense of our industry and all its career paths.

The process of figuring out what you want to do with your life can be overwhelming and anxiety-provoking to say the least. But you’ve stumbled upon advertising, an industry where change and unknowns are the only constant and we’re all still figuring out what we’re really in the business of.

So if you’re curious, comfortable with change, and looking for something different – subscribe to our podcast where we talk to young professionals in our industry and learn more about the stories and lessons from their journeys in advertising so far.

Tune in to our last episode!


For our third episode of In The Business of Something, we feature Katie Fitzgerald, who is a content queen (social media strategist) for the homegrown tech startup @Jobber that is rapidly growing across North America. 

Aside from talking about her fun and dynamic role in social media and customer engagement, we also get to hear Katie’s tips and tricks for students navigating potential career paths, and what skills and traits to hone in on if you’re interested in working in social media.

So if you want to learn more about a career path with a lot of variety and the occasional viral TikTok, give it a listen!
