I started my Spring semester internship with Neiman Group in January and have loved every Monday/Wednesday/Friday since! Neiman Group is located in the 1619 building on Walnut Street, which is the old NBC building. My label at Neiman is New Business Intern, although I’ve had the opportunity to assist various departments at the agency in addition to New Business. I have had the opportunity to better understand the rfp process at Neiman Group and learn about the strategic thinking and planning that goes into making and delivering a pitch. One aspect of interning at the agency that I really like is that I am able to help out any department and with many of their clients. As an intern I’ve helped out with the agency’s key accounts: Sunoco, Dietz & Watson, EnergyWorks, as well as their newest client, The National Constitution Center. I’ve had my fair share of market researching, binding presentation folders, sitting in on interviews, and even contributing my copywriting skills. (which was fun since I’m not an expert at it) Not only does it allow me to apply my skills and knowledge, but I get a well-rounded idea of how exactly each department works individually and than as a whole to deliver the creativeness to clients. Neiman Group is a great environment to learn in because everyone is so dedicated and passionate about advertising, and it shows all the time. Everyone is a team player and continuously thinking of new ideas and ways to keep Neiman moving forward. The agency is also a great environment to spend 3 days a week in. It’s relaxed, modern, and stocked with snacks. They often have fun events in the office like: a pie eating contest, beer tasting, Holiday celebrations, and a Happy Hour on Fridays just to name a few.
