Corey Benjamin, former Daily Wildcat advertising sales representative, and currently director of business initiatives at EDC Technology, part of the L Street Collaborative Network, in Chicago. "Since my tenure in the advertising department at the Wildcat ran nearly as long as my studies at the U of A, it was always more than just a job. It was an education unto itself, as where else would your day take you from a sushi restaurant to class to a tattoo parlor to a study group to a bike shop, all by noon? Managing a book of business on top of my studies over that long of a time frame forged a diligent work ethic and comfort for the unexpected that has been essential to my career path to date. Whether butting heads with the newsroom over which side of the paper was the most important, working with the eclectic business community that makes Tucson outstanding, or designing an entire campaign from scratch with the help of the creative department, I’m grateful for the wealth of memories I have from the Daily Wildcat newspaper."
