Monica Lum, an Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) senior, has been chosen for a postgraduate internship at the internationally known Wieden + Kennedy. W+K is "an independent, creatively driven advertising agency that creates strong and provocative relationships between good companies and their customers." They are best known for their work for Nike, Old Spice, ESPN, and Coca-Cola.
"I'll be working as a project management intern in their Portland, Oregon, office (headquarters). I'm ecstatic. I remember really liking W+K at the American Advertising Federation Mosaic Career Fair. I'm sure it'll be an amazing experience!"
Monica is currently involved with Ithaca College's Students Activities Board, Imprint Magazine and she has a minor in Art. She is also a Promotional Specialist with TEAM Enterprises in Ithaca, NY.
Helena Murphy, an IMC junior, has been chosen for a summer internship in Account Management with Deutsch in New York City. Their clients include Outback Steakhouse, PNC, DirectTV, and Microsoft.
Helena is a Martin Luther King Scholar and was most recently a student leadership consultant for the Office of Student Engagement & Multicultural Affairs.
"I am excited for the opportunity to work with MAIP, and explore the account management side of the advertising industry. MAIP seems like a amazing network of support and professionals, and I want to learn as much as possible during my time with the program."
The Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP) was founded in 1973 by the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A's) to help multicultural students break into the advertising industry. Each year, undergraduate and graduate students are selected for a 10-week paid summer internship at an 4A's member advertising agency.
