College Representative: Intern

Platform-One Entertainment

The Campus Rep position was a position for students interested in gaining marketing experience and who have a passion for music and lifestyle brands. As a Campus Rep, you are vital to the presence of Platform One artists, affiliates and brand clients on your campus on a grassroots level, so a solid knowledge of the campus scene and trends is key.

This includeed distributing merchandise forPlatform One artists and their affiliates both on-campus and at shows, I also hadt to identify key area venues and lifestyle retailers (skate shops, coffee shops, clothing stores), and attempted to work with the local radio stations and the school newpspaper to promote Platform One artists.

Why did I choose to go to Northern?

Northern Illinois University also has a great Business undergrad program. The degree programs offered by the NIU College of Business combine business fundamentals with immersive and experiential learning situations to provide students with a clear understanding of the challenges faced by actual businesses in a rapidly changing global business environment. 

Northern Illinois University is the only university in the state and particularly, in the Chicago area to offer internet marketing as part of the interactive marketing program area of study within the marketing degree. Dr. Debra Zahay Blatz currently holds the position of Associate Professor of Interactive Marketing teaching internet marketing and e-business courses. As they say, "where the classroom meets the business worlds," the classes offered prepare students for life upon graduation and help graduates, "hit the ground running!"
