#ALWAYSAMATERGIRL – Courtney Sombekke (2014)


A series of internships throughout her tertiary studies gave Courtney a clearer view of the advertising world and helped her land her first job. 

After completing VCE at Mater ChristiI went on to study a Bachelor of Communications, majoring in Advertising at RMIT.  

During my time at RMIT I did a number of internships. This helped me to work out where I did and didn’t want to work and also helped me land my first job at Posterscope, as a media buyer and planner. While working at Posterscope, I was accepted into an esteemed intensive creative advertising course called 'Award school' – which further developed my skills. This was both challenging and rewarding.   

RecentlyI have started a new job as an Account Manager in media sales at a company called JCDecauxThis is not where I thought I would be when I left school and I have no idea where I will be in 5 years but I am loving it and can’t wait to see what comes next!
