Pros:

BooneOakley was my introduction to advertising, and helped me learn a lot about the industry and how it works. I got to work on some of the projects for their clients, listen in on meetings, and feel apart of the agency. Because it is a small agency, I got a chance to work with almost everyone at one point or another, and I felt comfortable asking questions and asking for help.

Cons:

Very few, but I did feel like sometimes I did not have very much work to do, while other times, I felt slightly overwhelmed! Still, I enjoyed the challenge.

Pros:

Although the agency is awarded, BooneOakley is also small. The leadership is friendly, available, and open to ideas. I was able to leave the summer with produced work that was actually picked up by Agency Spy.

Cons:

The internship was very unorganized. I only gained what I did from it because I actively sought out work. I did A LOT of menial stuff, but it all paid off when I decided to go ahead and produce something of my own for the agency.

Interview Questions & Process:

A few emails and networking opportunities at my school got me connected with Greg and David.

Advice for other students:

This internship is absolutely what you make it. I'm sure everybody's experience will be very circumstantial.

Pros:

BooneOakley was my first internship in the advertising industry and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Everyone was so kind and served as mentors, not just co-workers. I got to work on two major projects over the summer with the other interns and enjoyed responsibility that I feel like I wouldn't have had a larger agency.

Cons:

None

Interview Questions & Process:

In order to get the internship at BooneOakley I connected with a co-worker who graduated from the same university as myself, but everyone is open and willing to talk to potential interns. I feel like emailing anyone at the agency could lead to an internship if you have the right attitude/qualifications.

Advice for other students:

If you have a passion for advertising and are willing to work hard then you will love working at BooneOakley.

Advice for other students:

BO is an incredibly personable, welcoming environment. They expect the interns to work just as the full-time employees. You'll never feel like an intern as long as you demonstrate eagerness to share your talent and learn about ad life.

Try to meet with someone who works there in the area you're wanting to intern in. They rarely post internships. Get a foot in the door somehow and be persistent!
