In the final semester of the Temerlin Advertising Institute’s MA in Advertising program, students work in an executive internship with a Dallas agency. Read Erica’s story below:
Erica Chiarello: Commerce House
My executive internships have allotted me the opportunity to work with clients like the Nature Conservancy, National Basketball Referee Association, and Mariano’s Hacienda. My first executive internship, taught me the value of direct marketing and how important it is within advertising to create personal relationships with your target audience. As I begin my second executive internship at the Commerce House as a social media intern, I am learning how to properly engage with consumers. My internship entails writing blog posts, social media entries, and working on video content to promote Mariano’s Hacienda and draw attention and humanize the NBA referees. I chose TAI because of their executive internship program and it has far exceeded my expectations. My executive internships have allowed me to take the information that I have learned in class and apply it in a real world setting. I am fortunate to have this opportunity and to work with such amazing people and clients.
