An Internship that is the Cat’s Meow…
Hello! My name is Brittany Blackman, and I am going into my senior year at Temple University. In my search for the perfect internship, I imagined myself in the city at a popular agency. However, my journey took me in a different direction. By a lucky chance, I landed at internship at a company called PetNovations, located in Norristown, PA. I am now obsessed with my job.
Philadelphia Fashion Incubator: Where Design Gets Down to Business
Hi! My name is Nicole and I graduated from Temple University a little over a month ago, but in order to get my degree, I just needed an internship credit. I pursued my Bachelor’s degree in Advertising with an Account Management track. A few weeks before graduation, I accepted an internship offer at Philadelphia Fashion Incubator. They are a non-profit organization that helps upcoming designers in the Philadelphia area build their brand and grow their business. Each year, they select a diverse range of designers and business people to participate in their designers-in-residence program. For a whole year, they will have to attend business boot camps, workshops, retail critiques, industry visits, meetings and consultations, and events in order to learn how create a successful business and get their brand up and running. Their resources include mentors from various companies and universities around the city who will educate, connect, and support them. This program is tailored to the needs and goals of the selected designers.
Finally made it!
My name is Amy and I am an Advertising major at the Klein College of Media and Communications. I made the decision at the age of 27 years old to get my college degree and embarked on a journey that would eventually end up here, at the American College of Physicians (ACP). I walked in May with the rest of my class and will graduate this August after the completion of my credited internship. However, it was not a road easily traveled. Along the way I had to work a full time job to support myself, in addition to dealing with an ailing parent among many other responsibilities. I have to be honest, there were times I wanted to give up and wasn’t sure I could make it through what ended up being seven years. Because of the demanding schedule I had during the school year, I wasn’t able to work as many internships as I would have liked. I am happy to say that working hard and applying myself to the curriculum, I was able to graduate magna cum laude and land what I consider to be an amazing internship at the American College of Physicians.
From the View of a Senior
As a senior wrapping up the last of my assignments and realizing that my time as a Temple advertising student is coming to an end, I’ve been thinking a lot about advice I would give to current and potential students in Klein. My number one takeaway would be this: always intern.
