Immersion Excursions are a unique opportunity for students to experience a “day in the life” at a specific organization, or in a particular industry. We’ve hosted immersions at multiple sites in Chicago, and with organizations as diverse as McKinsey & Co., Target, and Caterpillar.
This semester we’re offering a few more opportunities including an insider’s perspective on the music business, and a chance to learn about the always-popular marketing and advertising industry:
Music Industry Immersion Excursion with Ghostly International
Are you interested in working in the music business and want to learn more about the types of jobs available in the industry?
The Career Center is partnering with Ghostly International, a music-publishing company and record label located right here in Ann Arbor, to host an event just for you!
UM alum Jeremy Peters, Ghostly International’s Director of Creative Licensing and Business Affairs, will lead out this exploration into careers in the music industry on Friday, February 11th at The Career Center. Jeremy will talk about his experience working through the ranks from intern all the way to his current position, including the variety of roles he’s held along the way. Participants will have the chance to talk to Jeremy and other guests from different facets of the music industry, and will take part in a ‘case-study’ style simulation to gain a better understanding of what the business-side of music is really like. The day will end with a quick tour of Ghostly International’s office, a short walk from The Career Center.
This is a half-day event beginning at 9am and concluding at approximately 12pm. To be considered, interested students must submit a resume and a short (half-page) document explaining their interest in the music industry and what they hope to learn from this experience. Applicants will be considered on a rolling basis until 11:59 PM on February 3rd. This experience is open to students of any class level or major.

Marketing and Advertising Immersion Excursion in Chicago
The Career Center announces a unique opportunity for students to get an insider’s look into marketing and advertising agencies from the people who know them best. The San Jose Group and Ogilvy have generously opened their doors to University of Michigan students to learn more about their companies, what a typical “day in the life” looks like, and tips for finding success in these fields.
On Monday, February 28 (Spring Break), Career Center staff will be in Chicago to guide participants through on-site visits to the San Jose Group and Ogilvy offices. This is an all day event and students must be able to be present in Chicago to participate. Travel arrangements are the responsibility of the student. The event will begin at 9:30 am and conclude at approximately 2pm.
Interested students must submit a resume and short essay to be considered. Applicants will be notified of their status following the February 3 deadline. Questions? email Geni Harclerode (email@example.com) at The Career Center, 734-764-7460.
