  • Clear your schedule. SPACE Lab is a half-day-long program. Make sure you schedule a day you have available—like a half-day or full-day off of school.

  • Bring your own laptop. If you don't own a laptop, let us know in advance to find a solution.

  • Be prepared to work! This is a real workplace, and you'll get the full experience—and that means tackling real tasks you might face in an advertising career.

  • Be ready to look and act like a professional. Use your SPACE Lab day as a chance to practice your professional skills—that includes wearing professional attire and practicing professional conduct, especially if we have clients in the studio!

  • Ask us questions. You've got a rare chance to get insight on your future from a room full of professionals who are all ready to help. Don't be shy!
