After graduating in May, John moved up to New York City to work for Global Advertising Strategies, a Russian-owned marketing and advertising firm. He found the position while reading an article about Snob magazine, a Russian-American publication, which Global does the ad placements for. He credits His Russian and Eastern European Studies major and his interest in Russian culture for helping him get his position, and he uses his Russian knowledge daily -- reviewing Russian advertisements, translating information into/from Russian for account managers and just small talk around the office. The last three months have been a crash-course in the world of marketing and advertising, but it has been a wonderful experience thus far!
