HBCU CONNECT helps recent gradate with dream job via the 2019 Verizon AdFellows Program!
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on July 31, 2019

Thanks to a recent opportunity from Verizon, 2018 graduate Shannon Arthur will be spending the next several months as a candidate for the 2019 Verizon AdFellows Program.

The Verizon AdFellows Program offers an immersive, entry-level experience from a client and agency view spanning public relations, creative, media, and client-side branding. Candidates will get to rotate among top agencies and Fortune 50 companies for 8 months such as Verizon, Weber Shandwick, Integral Ad Science, R/GA, Momentum, The Community, Rauxa, MRY/Moxie, Accenture, McCann, McGarry Bowen, and Zenith/VM1.

Shannon saw our advertisement for the program through our web site and social media channels and submitted her information that would ultimately be combined with hundreds of other candidates hoping to be one of the finalists for the program. At the end of the day, and after phone call interviews, she was selected as a finalist and will be learning from the world's best companies and strategic minds.

We wish you well in your endeavors and good luck in New York!

"Good Morning Mr. Culpepper!

My name is Shannon Arthur, and I wanted to say thank you for believing in me enough to send my resume over to Verizon for the Ad Fellows program. I am proud to say I was chosen as one of the finalist! Thank you for your call way back in April!

- Shannon Arthur"
