FCB Chicago

Account Management

June - August 2019 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I was given a lot of ownership on the work I completed. I was always busy helping out my team. It was an amazing learning experience and was a very empowering internship.

What I wish was different

Really not much -- I think they do an absolutely amazing job with their internship programs. The one downside is the starting salary (if you receive an offer) is incredibly low.

Advice

Completely immerse yourself in the agency and constantly ask your team for work. It is the best way to learn and make a strong impression.

Account Management Intern

June - August 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

FCB Chicago is a large, full-service advertising agency that is a part of the Interpublic Group (IPG). I worked on several accounts in FCBX, the experiential agency within FCB Chicago. As an Account Management Intern, I primarily had the opportunity to learn about both traditional and experiential marketing. I also had the opportunity to interface with clients, manage timelines and budgets on accounts, and participate in group strategy sessions; including those for new business.

What I wish was different

I would have loved to play more of a role in the creative realm

Advice

Be the best "people person" you can be. Interact, connect and admire the people you meet. You make a good impression of yourself and learn a thing or two in the process.
