Alumni Testimonials

Dylan Cooper"For me, there is never a slow day in the office. Each day brings about new opportunities allowing me to showcase my various skills learned from the IMC program at UWA and the experience gained through my Masters of Advertising at Bond University. "

After graduating from UWA’s Integrated Marketing Communications program, Dylan moved to Australia to pursue a master’s degree at Bond University on the Gold Coast of Queensland. Since graduating with his Masters in Advertising, Dylan started working as Marketing Manager for iEC (International Entertainment Consulting), an international entertainment and exhibitions business based in Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast.

Only recently starting this new role in December 2018, Dylan jumped head first into the entertainment industry and has worked with a few noteworthy names in the business in this short amount of time: The Rolling Stones, Real Madrid Football Club, and The Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Most recently, Dylan had the pleasure to work alongside the Real Madrid Football Club, based in Madrid, Spain, in producing content for their social media channels to help promote a new global tour featuring the clubs trophies and memorabilia along with state of the art interactive zones. “It was a bit surreal to think that the content and copy I was creating was going to be published on the largest social media platforms in the world”- with Real Madrid’s Facebook page reaching well over 100 million followers worldwide. “I had no clue what I was getting myself into when I started this role, but I loved how much I was learning and the places it was taking me. The owners, my directors, are two of the most innovative people in the industry and somehow manage to create these exhibitions from nothing and turn them into a worldwide phenomenon. It has been amazing to see them in action.”

Brittany Harris"Thanks to UWA’s IMC Program, I was more than prepared for the workforce post-graduation. I now serve as the Partner Relations Coordinator for Habitat for Humanity of Tuscaloosa. As the PRC, I represent the organization in a variety of public settings to increase awareness and evaluate the needs of the public and local community groups. I develop compelling messages and content to be used in our marketing materials and on our social media platforms. IMC shaped me with the skills needed to advance this organization. Since I have joined the Habitat family, I have developed their very first online application form. I am forever indebted to the IMC program because it helped me develop and strengthen my marketing and communication skills."

Randa Simpson"The UWA IMC program has helped me land my dream job as the Media Relations Manager of the Florence/Lauderdale Tourism Bureau by not allowing myself to limit my skill set. From media relations, communications, graphics and website design I can do it all and save my business another salary to pay...and that means a bigger paycheck for me. An average day for me involves creating graphics and social media posts, taking photos of local events and attractions, talking with the media to market the area and planning events for conferences our company is hosting. All of these responsibilities are things I have already done before through my IMC courses so coming in as a new employee, I was not timid about jumping right in. For most it is unheard of for a 23-year-old to hold a managerial position for a government job, however for the UWA IMC program combined with hard work and determination, I could see it becoming the norm."

- Randa Hovater ('16), Media Relations Manager of the Florence/Lauderdale Tourism Bureau
