If you want to work in advertising (or marketing, graphic design, public relations, social media…), then you’ll need to stay plugged into the AAF-KC  — that is, the American Advertising Federation, Kansas City chapter. AdInk will help you do that. For starters, we’ll take a bus to AAF’s Career Day/”Spark KC” in the fall. For now, why not follow them on Twitter: @aafkc.
