All that matters is your book. My book was shit so I went to ad school

These days that’s hard even with ad school if you want to work somewhere good but it all depends how good your book is (if you don’t have one at all you’ll have a hard time even landing an internship. Some types of agencies PR/shopper/social might be less picky.

The internship will help a great deal but no book, no job. There are simply too many other applicants who have books.

Hello, I am currently doing an internship in TAS with a small local firm and have another TAS internship lined up this summer at a medium sized firm in Chicago. I graduate in May 2023 and am trying to think ahead because I heard most full time roles for 2023 in TAS will start being listed this fall. I would love to connect with some nice folks that work in TAS at Deloitte, EY, PWC, BDO, GT, or RSM to get a reference. I would really appreciate it!

Getting an internship as a Masters student - I have been looking for an internship in the NLP field for the upcoming summer but find it extremely hard to get one. 1) there aren’t many companies that offer internships in this field 2) a lot of them (esp big ones, which tend to offer internship in this field) require a PhD… My question is - does it make sense for a master student enrolled in a 2-year program to get an internship during summer?
