14 Jul Katie McDonald – Advertising Internship in London
Hi everyone! My name is Katie and I’m super excited to be completing an internship at advertising agency this summer in London. I grew up in Dunsborough, a small coastal town three hours south of Perth, always dreaming of living in a big bustling city like London! Ever since I can remember I’ve been fascinated by film and books, in particular how they can capture fragments of life and express them in ways unique to each person. I love anything and everything to do with creative expression and I’m also passionate about music, photography and fitness. I’m in my third year at the University of Western Australia majoring in Marketing and English and this experience will be my first ‘real’ introduction to the marketing and advertising world. During my studies I’ve had a taste of this world volunteering at Market Social, managing their digital marketing forums and for the last two years I’ve also had a part time job at a media and promotions agency, conducting demonstrations and free sample campaigns for popular goods, from Lindt chocolate and Smiths chips to domestic cleaning products like Mr Muscle – I’m looking forward to hanging up those crazy uniforms and experiencing marketing and advertising from another perspective in one of the most exciting cities in the world! I’m a big believer in grasping every opportunity that comes your way and I can’t wait to make the most out of my time at the Absolute Internship Program, learning vital skills that will enrich my professional career, while having lots of fun of course!
