Newhouse NYC Perks: Touring Amazing Offices like Google and YouTube
On March 3, students in the Social Media class heard from Newhouse alumna Kristina Hahn, the head of consumer packaged goods at Google. We were all excited to get a tour of the YouTube/Google offices located in Chelsea Market, hear about Kristina’s work experience, and learn how the company has evolved throughout the years. One of the most eye-opening things I heard during Kristina’s presentation was how media platforms like YouTube have changed the way people consume news, and how it has redefined the way advertisers reach consumers. Kristina finished her presentation with some words of wisdom: “Be uncomfortably excited about the disruption you can bring.” Without a doubt, all of the students left empowered and excited about how we, as future movers-and-shakers of the media industry, have the potential to innovate and redefine how media is consumed.
