I started as an Intern at GS&P and I totally recommend it to everyone. It helped pave my career better than any other agency has since for me

I was there for many years. You will learn from the very best and it will jumpstart your career. You should take it.

OP, I would be so excited to welcome you to the team and echo everyone else's sentiments. To answer your question about living in SF as an intern, it's hard but it can be done. Try looking for apartments in the Outer Sunset or Outer Richmond, and talk to Leslie Bee. She is constantly crowdsourcing ideas from the agency on how to do things on the cheap in the city. She will have great advice!

OP, I just finished a 4 month internship at Goodby, so here’s my advice.... housing is the hardest part, there are many affordable hostels in the downtown area if you’re into that kind of thing. If not I highly recommend looking on Craigslist as many of the other interns have found housing through there. It also really helps if you have friends in the city that can ask around and maybe find you a room for rent with friends. The workload will vary depending on which clients you end up working on and how well you do, but it’s definitely manageable, and it’s really easy to ask for help if you’re at all overwhelmed. There will be a lot of “small banner asks” but there’s also many opportunities to work on bigger projects. The people at Goodby are the best part of the experience, there are a lot of talented & smart people. Like D1 said, find them and learn from them. Just like any other place you’ll get out of Goodby as much as you put into it. Work hard and it’ll pay off.

They pay interns overtime which really makes a different on your paycheck at the end of the month. And it’s a great place to learn. Go for it!
