Participating in Ketchum LaunchPad changed my life. While I think I was a strong Fellow candidate on paper, partaking in the LaunchPad process was my opportunity to get my foot in the door with an even playing field, where I could demonstrate my communication skills and creative thinking beyond a resume or cover letter. As a result, in the Summer Fellow program, I was able to work with world-class clients and learn crucial PR skills that jumpstarted my career.

As a Ketchum Fellow, you not only get to work with high profile accounts, but you get advice, guidance and mentorship from some of the best in the business. Each week we had presentations from senior level staff on different important topics like professional development, influencer engagement, creativity and many more. It meant a lot that they took time out of their days to mentor and develop relationships with us. Launchpad was an engaging and objective way to interview for the Ketchum Summer Fellows Program. It was a welcomed break from the usual resume-heavy interview process. Launchpad allowed candidates to get interviews based on merit and writing skills versus past internships and well-formatted resumes. The fact that Ketchum took a risk and experimented with their hiring process shows they are committed to ensuring a fair, unbiased interview process that is in the candidate’s best interest.

Launchpad is unlike any other recruitment process that I've ever heard of or experienced. It gives everyone the same equal playing field and allows your peers to be gatekeepers to Ketchum. It opens the doors to rich diversity in ethnicity, experience and background which gives the company a rich foundation for the future. Launchpad is the future of recruitment and I highly recommend participating if you want to be part of a process that evaluates you based on your creativity and merit.

Ketchum Fellows have a unique opportunity to hone their public relations skills in a top-notch global communications consultancy. Fellows can expect to be immersed in valuable trainings, learning from key leaders in the industry while diving into immersive projects and campaigns that push creative boundaries. The Fellowship Program culminates with the presentation of a team project for an actual client. After completing my Ketchum Fellowship in Los Angeles, I was happy to continue working with my teams as an Account Coordinator in Chicago. There is no better professional setting than Ketchum to develop your PR toolbox and learn from the best in the business.
