Two more MA in Advertising students at the Temerlin Advertising Institute share their experiences at their executive internships with a Dallas advertising agency. Enjoy!
Sara Seaton – Firehouse Agency
In January, I started interning at Firehouse Agency. I joined the social media team, which technically falls under the planning division of the agency. The accounts I work on include Nothing Bundt Cakes, Blackmon Mooring, and Long Cove, a luxury lakeside development. Sometimes I’m pulled onto other accounts, like Service King and National Cheerleading Association, to help with other social media needs. Primarily, I help write and schedule branded social media content, monitor social platforms, and analyze campaign results. I’m currently working on a Pinterest project for Nothing Bundt Cakes, which requires me to flex my creative-problem solving muscle. I’m excited to see all of the spring social campaigns launch in the next couple of months. The results always uncover new insights into the overall social strategy behind a brand.
Arturo Lee – Buzzshift
I am currently working at Buzzshift. I was hired on as a design/art director intern. Currently I have been working on the Verizon, Surface Armor, and AC Pro accounts. I have been immersed in work from day one and was already able to develop some of the creative that Verizon will use at SXSW. For example, I was able to make the invitations to the Verizon exclusive Big Boi concert. As the weeks move ahead, I am really looking to hone my skills and get even better at certain programs, while also growing as a presenter in order to secure more interaction with the client.
