Summary description: The Kansas City Ad Club (called AAF-KC) is hosting its annual student-focused career event, now called “Spark KC: Advertising’s Career Conference.” This event was called “Advertising 101” in 2014 and “Career Day” prior to that. This event is attended by hundreds of students in the Missouri/Kansas region — Northwest has always been one of the largest, if not the largest, student attendance! Professionals who work in related jobs spend all day talking to students. Areas represented are: advertising, marketing, promotions, design, internet development and design, broadcasting, media, TV, radio, sales, etc.
