The Internship Series: A Testimonial
As an organization that prides itself in establishing meaningful connections throughout this industry’s vast network, we are always thrilled to share testimonials from AD Club members – past and present – who are able to carry their experiences with them into the next phases of their career. With our 2014 Intern Series set in motion, reminiscent perspectives are nice reminders of how truly valuable networking as a young professional can be.
Testimonial, Meredith Rowe, Assistant Account Executive, BBDO:
I had the pleasure of being part of the New York Ad Club Internship during the summer of 2013. Through the program, I was placed in an internship at BBDO Worldwide. As a result of this internship, I returned to intern again over winter break and am now a full-time employee.
I am so thankful for my internship with the Ad Club, both for my time at BBDO and for the opportunities provided by the Ad Club. The lunches each week supplied endless networking instances both through the agencies we visited and through my fellow interns. As a result of visiting Deutsch specifically, I was able to organize a trip to visit the agency when UF Ad Society did its annual New York trip.
The Ad Club provided me a wonderful introduction to New York and a platform on which to build my career. For that I will be forever grateful.
Hello Meredith Rowe, You have such a pleasant experience being part of the New York Ad Club and assigned at BBDO Worldwide. Surely there are many young professionals out there who would love to be where you are now. It is really good to know that an organization where you belong has an excellent program for internship and the way they value young professionals like you is remarkable.
As I see it, you really have the commitment to act with courage as you pursue in your career. I would just like to share some ideas I learned from my course that a person who acts the same way you do has a true personal ethical values and willing to do everything ethically for the organization at all times (Jahannesen, Valde, & Whedbee, 2008). In addition, the commitment of consistency means that the ethical thing a person do and to do it constantly is following the standards set by the organization. The organizational standards are part of the personal integrity practices.
You had a good choice when you decided to have your internship in New York Ad Club. Your ethical judgments put you in a place where you can develop your potentials. In fact, the good news about the ethical judgments is that, a person consciously seeks to develop himself to generally do his best to be better on the career they chose (Ess, 2009).
Personally, I would love to experience how it feels to be part of the AD club and for me to experience what it is like to build a career of my own. Thank you for sharing your testimony, you really inspire people, and I am one of those.
