I graduated in December 2020, I’ve been an AM intern for 6 months at a small local agency (~25 people) and based on convos I’ve had, it looks like there is an extension in the works, but no job offer. I’ve been interviewing for entry-level roles locally and have received a verbal offer for an account coordinator role at an even smaller agency that has very niche clients and focuses mostly on B2B. I’ve also received an offer for an AM internship at another, larger agency with some big clients..
