Advertising/Marketing, Public Relations & Graphic Design

If you like to write, have a creative flair, enjoy problem solving, thrive on pressure and in a fast-paced environment, the fields of advertising and public relations might be for you. Whether you work for an independent agency or within the marketing division of a large corporation, you will have the opportunity to shape how the public views your client.

In many ways, the fields of advertising and public relations are ideal areas for liberal arts graduates. They call upon your abilities to be a keen observer of the population at large, synthesize public opinion, work well in a team environment, write well, be an articulate and effective public speaker, and maintain a positive and high-energy profile within the workplace. Many Williams students possess these traits, skills, and talents, especially those who have chosen to concentrate in the humanities and social sciences.
