In our latest summer series post, Julia Lent ’18 tells us about her internship with TAG Creative agency in NYC. Be sure to follow our blog this summer to read more about what students and faculty are doing over the break.
What are your summer plans?
This summer I was lucky enough to land an internship with TAG Creative, a creative agency that specializes in making content that promotes an image and the messaging of a brand. TAG recently did a commercial for the chocolate company, Lindt, and has also worked with companies including Maybelline, L’Oreal, Urban Decay, Movado and others.
What do you hope to learn or bring back with you to school next year?
What I hope to bring back to school with me next year is job experience and ideas for my LASR project. I am really interested in marketing and communications, and I’m pretty sure it’s what I want to study in college and pursue as a career. I’m looking forward to seeing how things work in an agency like TAG, seeing the different directions my interests take me, and to try things that I normally wouldn’t be able to try.
One really cool thing you have planned during your time away from WMS
I think that this internship is probably the coolest thing I have planned for this summer, alongside traveling to Spain and Rome which were both pretty amazing trips.
