“MTernship” with McKinney

February 27, 2015

What is the Mternship?

It’s the trailer for the movie that you’re dying to see. It’s a sneak peek at agency life in all its horror and glory. And as an Mtern, sure, you’re an intern. But you’re also a worker, a collaborator, a youthful shot in the arm. You’re a fresh perspective, a valued new opinion and a privileged Pub Thursday or Bar Cart Friday patron. You’re now a member of the team responsible for Samsung’s Kristen & Dax spots, Nationwide’s “Invisible Mindy,” Sennheiser’s somewhat creepy ear-loving Urbanite, and the Travelocity Roaming Gnome. You’re getting a preview of what you could be in your advertising career. Make the Mternship the prologue to your story. Join us.
