Avery Wilhite News

MOBILE, Ala. – The Good Work Agency is a full-service marketing agency based out of the University of Mobile School of Business that gives students the opportunity to gain real-world experience in the realm of marketing before they graduate.

In addition to the theory and coursework they learn in the classroom, the Good Work Agency provides practical application for students to take what they have learned and put it into practice.

Types of work that students may work on include branding, graphic design, web development and design, social media management, email marketing, photography/videography and project management. All proceeds from the students’ work goes back into student development and scholarships.

Students from all degree programs who have an interest in the marketing field are welcome to join. Currently, the agency consists of students from the digital media and advertising, management, and graphic design disciplines.

School of Business senior Avery Wilhite says “Having been a part of the Good Work Agency from the very beginning in 2018 has been extremely special. Through it all, I have had the opportunity to work on challenging projects that have given me the real-world experience that employers look for. I have also made life-long friends and been able to make great connections within the marketing industry.”
