Why is it so hard to find an internship in Miami? I just wanna get into an agency -_-

Best advice I got when I was new to the industry was try to get around gate keepers (secretaries, etc)...call them before 9 am and you'll get the company directory instead of a human who will tell you they can't put you through to the CD. Call during lunch hours. Be relentless, be confident, do your research on the agency and when you speak with them frame your experience or goals within their company vernacular.


OP - I moved to NYC .... it wasn’t easy 4 years ago, but at the end of the day it was the best move for my career. Have you tried looking into other markets that have a lot of agencies like Chicago? It might be easier on the wallet to go there first.


Because they aren’t many agencies or opportunities there. And the ones that are there are small in comparison. It’s rough - take it from me I’m from Miami and had to move because I didn’t find anything.

I don't really WANT to move but I feel like I'm going to have to. On top of that MAS is absolutely unaffordable for someone like me. I've been thinking of moving to NYC because theres more agencies and adhouse looks like a promising program, but that requires saving which... Guess what, is hard to do without a real job.

DM me if you want to chat, one Miamian to another!

Honestly if I had a guarenteed job lined up and a place to live I don't really care where I'd have to go. I love this city but I want to be in an agency more than anything. I've considered buenos aires, and was actually saving up to move there, but my job had layoffs recently and now I'm just trying to bounce back.

Sr. AD: How do I DM you?

Op I think you just tap my title and an option to chat pops up

Nothing. Email?

Also, there are some great agencies in Miami. I'd be calling Gut like 5 times a day trying to see if they need any hungry af young gun guns to help them out.

I wanna work at GUT so bad. Anselmo is a personal role model of mine. Unfortunately I can't find a number anywhere. But I've been sending emails...i wonder if I should just go to their office

OP - it doesn’t hurt to try and show up - just be aware that they have their days scheduled already Also: miatonycfishbowl@gmail.com

I walked into W+K London once just because I walked past their door and it seemed to be open and I had nothing to lose. The guy at the front desk was filling in for their receptionist, and he told me if I want to work at W+K NY, show up in the lobby, be weird, and bring cakes (he was British, so I think cakes just meant baked goods) to get people to talk to me.

I’m dying to work with Anselmo too. I think they have a pretty core small team now though. In the meantime I’m moving out of state pretty soon.

I'm calling it now. GUT is going to be one of the next big indepents.

I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely.

Looking for career advice for a mentee who has two competing Internship offers as a sophomore from Google and Uber.

Also from what I've heard, it's easier to get a return offer from Uber than Google's soph program. Which would you take and why? I'm not in the tech field so trying not to give bad advice 😁
