The advertising and marketing industry needs all kinds of people. Those who excel in this competitive business come from all industries, disciplines of study and walks of life. Everyone, no matter who they are or what they do in life, will benefit from taking classes at HSA. Advertising and marketing is communication, pure and simple. And we can make you much better at it.
It’s very difficult when you’re in school to have an accurate idea of what it’s like to actually have a job in the industry. I think having a lot of different people come in and share their experiences at HSA really helped me get a better grasp on that.

Without HSA, I would not have been able to impress my first employer right off the bat. I worked as a marketing assistant (junior graphic designer/marketing planner) at Weingarten Realty and I was able to plan creative events and advertisements for their commercial real estate locations. Because of HSA I was able to think critically about how to draw more patrons to real estate events, trade shows, and charity events.
