IAA Young Professionals Romanian chapter (IAA YP) announced the start of the entry period for the 8th edition of CompetitIAA, a competition which gives the students with a passion for marketing and communication the possibility to be part of a pitch simulation for renown brands from Romania and to earn prizes; moreover, they have the chance to get an internship or even a job if the companies are noticing them.
During CompetitIAA, students have the chance to work like an agency for a real client, to learn which are the steps to follow to win a pitch and to see their ideas implemented. During this learning process, we are offering the environment in which they will develop, we facilitate the access to mentors represented by seniors from the industry and we organize dedicated workshops so they can acquire as much useful info and insights. We are happy this is the 3rd year when we organize CompetitIAA together with our colleagues from Cluj. We wish good luck to the teams who enter the competition
