Is it a horrible look that I’m interviewing for full-time roles while in the middle of an internship? I’m not intentionally keeping it a secret or bringing it up right away, but I’m worried it will make me look sketchy.

Absolutely not. There’s no guarantee you’ll be hired by that agency after your internship (unless there was an agreement otherwise). It’s the same thing as people looking for a new job while in another job. Go for it. The industry is hiring right now. Take advantage of it.

Also if you get another offer and you like this place more don’t let them sell you on freelance to full time because they will try keep you at the same pay. The job market is hot right now, do not settle.

That’s exactly what you should be doing. And I echo was CW1 said, two offers is never a bad thing.

Unless the company you are interning at has guaranteed you a job offer at the end of it that you have communicated you are accepting, you absolutely should be interviewing for FT roles during it.

Lol no you have no idea if that internship will pan out. Interview at as many places as possible. Also carry this instinct into your future ad life and always be looking.

Pivoted careers and spiteful people in my new job keep telling me I’m underqualified and shouldn’t be here and that I was a bad hiring decision. Tips to stop this from feeding my imposter syndrome?

The red flags are endless - I did some scoping and their VP of marketing graduated in 2018 and head of HR was a lawyer until they started in that role 2 months ago.
