Any thoughts on taking a class at Adhouse while interning at a great agency? It's not a necessity since I have this internship, but I've been thinking it can just help my craft. If so, which class?

I’ve found those classes are only as good as your instructor. Find a teacher who’s work you admire and take whatever they’re teaching.

If you’re already at a great agency. And it is truly great, just concentrate on that for now.

Are you worried about not getting any work produced during the internship? Working on real briefs at an actual agency is invaluable. But I’d also suggest working closely with a trusted mentor at the agency to give you feedback on spec work.

Do it. Find instructors you like, and work hard to impress them. You might find that besides a portfolio, they’re willing to help you get a good job. I always prefer hiring a recommended person, or hiring a jr I’ve worked with. It’s so much easier on me lol.

I did that 20 years ago by accident (I signed up for a class before getting a Jr. writer job). The class was with David Angelo, and it was a lot of work to keep up with both but I don’t regret it.

Agree with @ACD2, concentrate on your internship and make the most of it. Be proactive and keep presenting as much ideas as you can to your CD or line manager. That might turn into a job offer once your internship is over.

Any tips on how to turn my summer internship into a full time offer? Been trying to get on as many engagements as possible but it's difficult with how slow it is during the summer.

I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely. I started off as an intern (8 months) and now I am working full time. I am trying to learn the language to be more interactive with the clients and in the meetings but it's super difficult. Should I switch or learn the language and stay here for another year? It's a small firm and the pay is not that great but good for beginners in the country. Any advice?

As I think through my undergrad experience, I realized that I did nothing remarkable. “So few so” that I don’t know what to write for the essay.

Now I am in consulting and that IB experience seems to be more irrelevant. How dare I compete with the other wonderkids?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
