The Mars Agency is excited to welcome our 2015 Summer Interns! Each week the internship team will write a blog post discussing their experience and learnings working for The Mars Agency. To learn more about our Internship program, visit the internship page.
Entering your first week as an intern can be intimidating, but we were welcomed with open arms. From client leadership, to account planning, to creative, everyone was excited to have new interns and fresh minds added to their team. Even Global CEO, Ken Barnett, made time to give an encouraging welcome speech to stir our inspiration. We’ve gone home each day excited to return for the next, mostly for the honey mustard pretzels in the snack bar.
So far, we’ve had training on the plethora of research programs and resources available to us, a workshop on professional etiquette, an introduction to great works done by The Mars Agency, and even got the chance to talk with a past intern who was hired in for a full-time position. Some of us even got to sit in on a brainstorming session. We’ve been introduced to our departments and mingled with our mentors at the Happy Hour, which occurs every Friday! After a long week of training, we’re all eager to be The Mars Agency ‘Martians’ and work on real-time campaigns with actual clients.
