High schooler wants to be a “suit” for a summer


I am a grade 11 student and I am positive that I want to get into the advertising business (as an account executive or creative director) I want to know which agencies I can get a volunteer job for the summer so that I can I can gain experience for the future…Ogilvy&Mather would be an excellent start icon smile High schooler wants to be a suit for a summer

intro High schooler wants to be a suit for a summerLove your enthusiasm, but here comes the wet blanket. You’ll have to have several more years of life experience (including school) and a firmer goal to be in a position to do an internship at an ad agency. Not a lot of high school kids running around agencies (unless, of course, they’re offspring of management…). Start checking out the schools with strong advertising programs. That’s your next stop.
