Congratulations to current advertising student and past Summer at the Circus Program participant Sarah Arrington, who has accepted an offer in BBDO’s summer internship program in Atlanta.
A junior from Johns Creek, Ga., Arrington is also pursuing a sociology minor and a New Media Certificate. Her decision to apply to BBDO depended mainly on its highly regarded reputation. With their mantra, “The work, the work, work,” they create some of the most successful and creative advertising campaigns around the world.
“They work hard and have a great agency culture. Interning with BBDO is an amazing opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience and learn about the industry through a large scale agency,” Arrington comments.
This summer, she will be working as an Account Management intern on either the AT&T, the Bayer or Georgia Lottery account. Towards the end of the internship, interns also have the opportunity to work directly with a local client to create a strategic and unique advertising campaign specific to that client and later present it to agency executives.
Arrington says she is most excited about the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in an advertising agency:
“As much as I have enjoyed my advertising classes, I am thrilled to learn more about advertising and the role of an account manager in a real world setting. Last summer, I participated in the Grady-sponsored Summer at the Circus program learning about the creative side of advertising, so my internship will be a great opportunity to learn more about the account side of the industry.”
After graduation in December, Arrington hopes to participate in more internships at various advertising agencies. Her interest lies in the creative side of advertising, so she hopes to eventually attend the Creative Circus to build a portfolio and pursue a career as an Art Director.
