What You Should Know About MullenLowe

This past Friday on April 5th, 2019, a group of over twenty Bentley students visited the MullenLowe office in Boston, MA.  Paul Stanish, Bentley Career Coach, set up this event with Kelly Lane, HR Rep at MullenLowe. A panel of seven Bentley alum spoke about their stories and gave advice to the group of students.  There was also a Q&A session, along with a brief networking session.  Here are some key takeaways the students learned!

    • You will not always be working with a “big name” client, but it is still very valuable to work with any client and gain that experience.
    • Do not get discouraged.
    • Agencies are very competitive, so find a way to make yourself stand out.
    • Be prepared to work in a fast-paced, constantly changing environment.
    • Everyone takes a different career path.
    • You’re going to grind in the beginning, but you will eventually move up!

    • The jobs at MullenLowe are full of variety, excitement, and fun!
    • Being versatile as a candidate because you will be changing clients.
    • We hire people that scare us because Mediocrity scares us more.
