“As an alumna of UF’s College of Journalism and Communications, I was thrilled for Quirk to participate in the program. Our intern participated in everything from creative brainstorms to client presentations and even assisted on set for multiple productions.

Avra Lorrimer
Executive Vice President & Chief Growth Officer, Hill+Knowlton Strategies

“I wasn’t sure what to expect when the students arrived in our New York office to pitch – and over our two days together they thoroughly impressed me. The students displayed curiosity about the pitch process, ingenuity in their mission to solve the brief, creativity in their response and professionalism in their behavior. Their pitches were excellent, and the experience gave me great faith that this cohort of students will make an impact on our industry.”
