The Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA), of which Advertising Council of India (division of STACA - Standing Committee on Advertising - Trust) is a member, has announced the second edition of its Fast Track Professional Excellence Programme in Malaysia. The 30-hour skill improvement certification programme for professionals under 35 years of age will be hosted from 11 to 13 July 2014.
Like last year, STACA will be sponsoring a substantial part of the expenses of four to six young professionals chosen through a selection process.
Professionals from advertising and marketing under 35 years can apply for sponsorship by writing an article about problems faced by their industry - and the possible solutions. The article (not more than 75 words) should be mailed email@example.com along with their brief profile (age, valid passport number, jobs details, etc.) before 3 June 2014.
Pradeep Guha, chairman AFAA said, “Post a successful pilot event in 2013, this three-day intensive residential Fast Track programme is back to guide young professionals to re-connect with their passion for the industry, and develop resilience, empowerment and leadership that will anchor them as they face the challenges ahead. I hope young marketing and advertising professionals will grab this opportunity to put their careers on the fast track.”
