News story

Ready for a great opportunity to gain first-hand industry experience to put on your CV?

Students gathered around laptops laughing and smiling.

Curtin Marketing Association (CMA) is partnering with mental health campaign, Act Belong Commit, and Curtin University to give students experience in responding to a real industry marketing brief.

Event Details:

Date: Wednesday, 8 September

Time: 9:30am – 4:30pm (AWST)

Location: Curtin University, Kent Street, Bentley, WA 6102

As part of the Hackathon, you’ll have the opportunity to develop a marketing plan that addresses a serious health issue and help protect university students and staff from mental illness. You’ll also get the chance to work on the campaign to implement your strategy at Curtin if you’re one of two students chosen from the top 3 teams for this internship.

You can register as an individual or as a team. Registered students will receive an email with a copy of the brief and a video from Act Belong Commit outlining the brief in more detail before the event. Prizes include a cash prize for each of the top 3 teams and an award for the overall best presenter on the day.

You don’t need to be a marketing student to take part, as there are many components to this brief that may require design skills. Having a team member with mental health knowledge may be advantageous.

The event will go over one day during the tuition-free week, with food and drinks provided.

Registrations close 5pm, 1 September.
