Rebecca Hoerner, a senior advertising and Spanish double major, was selected by Amsterdam Worldwide for an exclusive account management internship this summer. The opportunity was only offered to AdPR students at the University of Georgia.
Amsterdam Worldwide, a global advertising agency, specializes in work for multinational companies such as Intel, Panasonic, ASICS and GM, among others. The eight-week internship runs from June 1 to August 1, and internship duties include aiding the account team in its workload, pitching business opportunities or internal projects.
Hoerner said her past study abroad experience influenced her decision to apply. “I receive email notifications from LinkedIn and saw Dr. Reichert's post about an internship opportunity in The Netherlands and instantly thought how amazing it would be to do what I love -- advertising -- and get agency experience abroad,” she said. “ I met with Dr. Reichert and my Message Strategy professor Elli Roushanzamir and they were both excited to hear that I was seriously considering applying for the internship and assured me it would be such a unique and amazing experience.”
Hoerner will be living in The Netherlands this summer, working with the account management team at the company. She hopes to do some traveling around Europe during her time abroad, including places like Cannes, Paris, Stonehenge and Italy.
