On April 10, 22 Ridgefield High School (RHS) students visited the offices of Merkle Group, a global marketing agency that specializes in digital data driven technology. It was an exciting opportunity for the students to see first-hand how a marketing agency provides creative solutions to their clients.
“We think it is very important for students to see how people are working in real-world business situations,” said RHS Business teacher Keith Brown. “Merkle Group very generously invited our students to come in and share with them how their company develops digital advertising campaigns for clients. It really gave the students an experience of what it would be like to work in a digital agency.”
This year, the RHS business department organized a series of field trips for business students including a visit to MetLife Stadium and The New York Jets organization, Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge in Stamford, DECA (Career Development Conference) and FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) state competitions and a trip to Dutchess County Courthouse in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., to experience real life trial and interviews with many legal professionals.
