I’ve spent a whole week as a copywriting intern at Energy BBDO, and I think I can sum it up in two words: Free candy. But for reals though, apart from the awesome recreational perks that the agency has to offer, like a bottomless bowl of free M&Ms and a futuristic coffeemaker that’ll do everything short of giving foot rubs or showing human emotion (for now, at least), it’s been a great learning experience to get thrown into the lion’s den and figure shit out.
I have an awesome mentor who’s helped me hit the ground running, and I already feel like a full-time staffer with how comfortable everyone’s made me feel. My art director partner and I aren’t just sitting in on meetings, we’re expected to come in with work. WORK, I SAY! Like, actual ideas to pitch to people way more important than us. And they think our ideas are not-terrible! Woohoo! Good enough for me!
Fun stuff all around. I’m super pumped for next week. Will keep all two of you who read my blog posted!
