Check out what two of our former Fellows have to say about their experience:
“There is no other internship that could have better prepared me for ‘the real thing.’ Through Ketchum’s Summer Fellows Program, I was able to fully immerse myself into a real work culture, be part of a dynamic account team, work for one of the company’s biggest clients, and also work on our own business pitch. While very challenging at times, the combination of the team project and account work afforded me the best opportunity to work with employees across the different practices and across the agency. I could not have asked for a better summer internship!”- Megan McCarrick, Assistant Account Executive and 2010 Fellow Alum
“I’ve participated in several brainstorms here and I have been astonished by the ideas that come out of them. What inspires me more than the sheer magnitude of creativity (and candy) in the room at any time is the process. The idea that creativity can be nurtured and developed and turned into impactful, profitable ideas is thrilling.”- Alexandra Rogers, Account Associate and 2011 Fellow Alum
