How did you hear about the internship at McCann?

Initially, I noticed the application for MRM//McCann SLC on LinkedIn. One of my fellow classmates did an internship with them during the previous semester and he was able share his experience with me. During the application process, I was able to get in touch with Lauren Fisher, an Account Executive at McCann. She also happens to be the one who recruited me for the Business Scholars Program during my freshman year. She helped me get an inside look on what it would be like to work for MRM//McCann.

What was role be at McCann?

I was the New Business Intern at MRM//McCann during the summer of 2015. Within my role, I participated in the pro bono project for Nuzzles & Co. in which I was able to organize photo shoots and publicity events in order to help in the rebranding of this organization. I also put together an agency wide social media proposal consisting of multiple competitive analysis, health evaluations, and recommendations. I enjoyed being immersed in the advertising world and being kept on my toes. It was the best experience I’ve had to date.

How do you feel business scholars prepared you for the internship process?

The best preparation that the Business Scholars Program has provided for me was the ability to know what I want to do in my life. After my freshman year, I knew the majors that I didn’t like and the one that was the most appealing to me. With this confidence, I was able to focus on my studies and elevate my skills within a specific industry. Knowing that I wanted to do Marketing so early on allowed me to build the rest of my college career around it.
