Alumni Spotlight: Ashley Arter, 2016

What’s happening in your career right now?
I am currently the advertising designer and producer for Refinery29. My everyday tasks include creating and designing advertisements for clients and building/coding them on our website. I also manage our advertising production team.

How did you approach finding a job after graduation? 

I researched the top 10 companies in NYC with great company culture and looked for jobs within those companies. Refinery29 was second on that list. I interviewed at multiple places, which was the most challenging part. I was ecstatic when Refinery29 hired me on the spot.

What career accomplishment are you most proud of so far?

I see a lot of small accomplishments every day in my position. I can go on the Refinery29 website at any time and see that almost all of the advertisements have been put there by me. I work very hard on making everything look pleasing and cohesive. Seeing that on the website every day is an accomplishment in itself.
