I’ve been involved with AMPed since it’s relaunch in 2015 and it’s definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made while being at uni.
AMPed is a student-led society for those with an interest in advertising, marketing, public relations and international business at QUT. AMPed provides professional development and networking opportunities for members with social events to interact with like-minded students. As a society, we want to empower students to advance professionally while having a great time meeting new people.
There’s such a variety of people in AMPed, most study advertising, marketing or public relations (AMPR) and some have second majors in other areas like creative industries so you can relate with anyone while gaining some new perspectives as well! Members are always keen for a chat or have a good time.
The AMPed executive team of 2017 is filled with fresh and excited students who are ready to make uni the best it can be for members! The team will make sure that our events are the best, you’ll be empowered with our professional development and make some awesome friends along the way.
I can honestly say that I initially joined AMPed for the professional events but found that there was more to it than just that. I’ve made some amazing friends through the society. In just two short years, AMPed has made a huge impact on myself and plenty of other students. With amazing events, gain professional development and make some great friends along the way. It’s no wonder that AMPed won the 2016 award for ‘Club of the Year’.
The events keep getting bigger and better. The networking event last year was massive, with a huge variety of leaders in the AMPR industry. The social events are always a good time where we had a massive turn out (and bar tab) at our California Dreaming: End of Year. We’ve got plenty of fun in store for 2017 including great chances to networking with industry and social events that you’ll remember even when you finish uni!
So I bet you’re itching to join AMPed now right? Well luckily you can come find us at our decked out bright orange stall at O-Week! We’ll be at Gardens Point Campus on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st February and at Kelvin Grove Campus on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd February. It’s only $10 to join AMPed where you’ll get an awesome swag bag full of goodies to make sure you’re ready for all the amazing events AMPed has planned. And trust me, the bar tab is enough reason to come along!
