This year, the Summer Internship Program at Davis Elen brought us the most amazing team of interns and –no surprise– they totally crushed it. Adriana, Jaqueline, Jacob, Neve, Mackenzie, Nicholas, and Amanda each got a peek behind the curtain to see how Davis Elen helps grow some of the world’s most iconic brands, as well as a few up-and-coming ones.
We ditched the old ‘crash course’ internship model by taking our interns on a deep dive into our Adventures in Advertising Workshop. Throughout the workshop’s nine sessions, we followed a single campaign through each department to better understand how they all come together to make it successful. With each session, our interns learned new insights and applied them to the projects they worked on for our clients everyday.
In the end, hopefully our interns came away with a broader understanding of how our agency model works, learned the effect their work can have on other departments, and saw just how many challenges a piece of communication has to overcome before it gets to the final judge: the general public.
As for us, we came away with a wonderful experience and hopefully some future colleagues to work with down the road.
