Now as an advertising student, it’s one thing to learn about advertising through the great textbooks we read every semester and through the wonderful mock campaigns that we creatively accomplish (including the hours we spend creating such advertisements). But it gives everything you’ve learned a whole new meaning you are actually doing it in a live agency. I got a great taste of that on my 1st day at LevLane Advertising as a Traffic and Production Coordinator Intern. Let me tell ya. My first day was NOT for the faint of “Hart” to say the least. I came in on one of the busiest days in the agency and from the time I put my belongings down, I was following around the traffic and production coordinator around like a puppy on a string! From taking mental (and physical) notes on what & how to do what she did, to shaking hands, meeting people and learning new names, it was INSANE! But I must say, I learned the most that day. I say this because believe it or not, that is exactly how I learn. I am a VERY visual person and I have always learned by doing. This goes ESPECIALLY for directions. If I visit somewhere for the 1st time, I have no idea where I’m going (of course). But if I ever come back to the same area, I can have a decent sense of direction based on the area of the location and what buildings are where, etc. But I digress.
