Here’s my Chance, HMC,  is a creative agency in Northern Liberties where I was lucky enough to land an internship. As an intern at HMC I had the opportunity observe and take on some real responsibility. I was able to work hand in hand with senior level staff, interact with the client, be present in brainstorming sessions, contribute tagline ideas, assist in video shoots, attend budget meetings, and publish blog posts. I got a feeling for what agency life could be and I have fallen in love.

We were encouraged to feel like we were apart of the HMC team. We were also encouraged to come together as interns.

I look forward to interning with an agency next. In any internship I think there are certain steps to successful experience.

I am an intern at our very own Fox School of Business / School of Tourism Hospitality. I am working in the PR department, helping with general creative production.

Richie Rich and the “theater” (say it like Kristen Wiig would on Saturday Night Live) might be vastly different, but the idea of fundraising and development have a lot in common with Macaulay Culkin’s best role (minus Home Alone or being Mila Kunis’ boyfriend). You have to not spend money, but HAVE money to make even MORE money. In the Wilma’s case, they’re non-profit, so making more money helps to create productions and advance its mission. And creating personal relationships with its donors and funders, then following up with those relationships, are the keys to sustaining people’s support.
