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.

That’s 100% what you should be doing.

not at all.

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.

I don’t know who to ask for references. Since law school I worked at a non profit for 2 years. Then clerked. Was at a firm two months before it closed and now at my current firm. I have one from my supervisor at the nonprofit. But I’m not sure where to get my others. I could get my judge but not sure they’d be willing/have good things to say. We didn’t have a good relationship. Is it okay to ask someone else from the nonprofit or maybe my co-clerk? It’ll be six years but someone from internship?

How do you handle when someone briefs your direct report into a new project without talking to you? Person who did it is senior to me but we have the same manager so we are sort of peers. The project makes sense for my direct report but I feel undermined and disrespected for not being consulted. Am I being too sensitive? I don’t want to seem petty but I would never bypass one of my peers like this unless something was time sensitive - even then, I’d send a courtesy note as a heads up.
